When digital technology was first used in our schools, it was a tool for teachers to communicate with students and parents. Today, students are using technology to support their learning. In 2013, Alberta Education developed the Learning and Technology Policy Framework. Policy 1 of that framework focuses on student-centred learning. Technology is used to support student-centred, personalized, authentic learning for all students.
Parkland School Division was recently asked to share all the great work happening in our school division when it comes to Policy 1. In our fourth and final video in our series , we feature how students use technology, online learning and digital learning to demonstrate what they know and are able to do through effectively using a range of resources and media.
Memorial Composite High School science teacher Simon Ropert shares his story on the ‘flipped classroom’ to kick off this video that also covers the Seesaw app, more Google Classrooms and student directed learning techniques.
