Supporting Leaders in Implementing the Learning and Technology Policy Framework (LTPF)
A group of Administrators and Teachers from Parkland School Division (PSD) are part of a provincial cohort with nine other school divisions that are investigating how collaborative leadership strategies may achieve significant gains in LTPF implementation. This concentrated work in looking at current educational technology research, visiting other school divisions, and creating a clear vision for technology-supported, student-centered learning in Alberta.
The Ministerial Order on Student Learning states:
“the fundamental goal of education in Alberta is to inspire all students to achieve success and fulfillment, and reach their full potential by developing the competencies of Engaged Thinkers and Ethical Citizens with an Entrepreneurial Spirit, who contribute to a strong and prosperous economy and society.”
It is with this in mind that this leadership cohort is encouraging the type of teaching and offering supports in order to support this fundamental goal.
Recently, the PSD group visited two schools, École Broxton Park School and Spruce Grove Composite High School to learn how the Administrative teams at these two sites engage their staff and students to emphasize student-centered education, the learners in ALL of us, competencies, inquiry, knowledge application and technology to support creation and sharing.
