In this post, I am pleased to share the work of Mme Rosemary Berndt and her grade nine French classes. This year they pushed their approach to “un musée virtuel”to a new multi media and collaborative approach in making their learning visible.It was a pleasure to work with Mme Berndt and her students in providing support to the project.
This audio clip by Mmd Berndt provides a project overview and professional reflection. (Note: this is also included in the video introduction).
WRDSB Ted-Ed clubs is excited to host the very first live TED-Ed clubs event, featuring great talks by students in grades 3-8 on June 7, 2017 from 12:30 – 2 pm at Vista Hills Public School in Waterloo, Ontario. Learn more about the event.
Last fall the Waterloo Region District School Board held their third Digital Learning Symposium. Each symposium has focused on sharing effective classroom practice, changing practice and promoting innovative practices.
The series of events has provided an opportunity for educators to come together, share, network and talk about next steps to pushing the envelope, building synergy and scaling change at the system level.
One of the strategies used at this recent symposium was to capture the best practices shared through video recording and create a WRDSB system blog to share the learnings and innovative approaches through other initiatives such as meetings of system leaders, school staff meetings and subject association sessions. It is important to keep the momentum of the change conversation going. This public blog also supports open learning for all educators.
