Students learn in different ways. Technology assists with alternative ways to demonstrate knowledge across all curricular areas as described in the new BC curriculum.
A series of five after school workshops is available to connect teachers with colleagues to:
- inspire and guide learners to be responsible citizens
- focus on the use of mobile devices for meaningful learning experiences
- encourage all learners to engage in experiences to inquire and innovate
Teams from interested schools comprised of an administrator, 2 to 3 teachers and/or a teacher-librarian “Inquiry demands that educators actively scan their environments, generate questions, try new approaches, observe and collect evidence, synthesize information from a variety of sources, draw conclusions and generate new questions.”
Each workshop consists of 1 hour of exploration and essential information with an additional (optional) hour of “hands-on” learning.
Using the Spirals of Inquiry handbook, teams from each school will collaborate as they focus on:
- critical thinking skills
- collaboration and teamwork
- authentic learning tasks
- technology as a tool to add value to learning
