Northern Lights School Division 113
Innovative Teaching and Learning
Educational Technology Committee Vision
Digital Technology is essential to foster adaptive lifelong learning in a changing global landscape. Within the cultural context of northern communities, we envision learning environments where:
Students become inspired, ethical and critical creators, collaborators and consumers of media and digital technology.
Educators use technology to enhance, differentiate and transform learning across the curriculum utilizing a student centered approach.
Administrators are “lead learners” who inspire, model, and cultivate the use of technology in learning.
If you are a student, parent or teacher looking for information on Digital Citizenship, Media Literacy or for class activities you should check out MediaSmarts! You will find TONS of free resources, tools and interactive materials to support children and teens in developing critical thinking and internet safety skills in our modern digital world.
Truth and Reconciliation Supports
The Ministry of Education has created a great resource for bringing discussions and content into the classroom which focuses on Supporting Reconciliation in Saskatchewan Schools. This resource is continually being added to and is a great starting point for anyone unsure about how to move forward.
Another great resource to begin or support discussions is: CBC’s Beyond 94 .
