Technology Summit II

On March 17th​ Teachers from Anglophone East School District were invited to participate in the continuing conversation about reshaping the future of technology-accelerated learning in New Brunswick. The Department of Education and Early Childhood Development (EECD) believes it is critical to engage communities in the change process over the next 12-18 months. During this conference, partnerships were formed for the benefit of all – students, teachers, businesses and our communities.

There are many positive things happening in our schools and we need to expand best practices across the province. We would like to develop a system-wide approach for using and implementing technology in Math, Sciences, Literacy, the Arts and elective courses. These goals align with objectives outlined in the 10-year Education Plan, Everyone at Their Best​.

My presentation will focus on the role of iPads within an effective classroom environment.  We will look at how iPads have affected the differentiation of lessons, assessment of student progress, and the manner in which students demonstrate their understanding.  I will show examples of how the camera function and various free apps can greatly improve common teaching practices.​

This year we have introduced iPads in a one to one format for both the grade 2 and 3 classes.  We started small and have worked our way from basic iPad functions to cross-curricular project creations (Science, Math, Language Arts, Health and Gym).​

SWIVL is a robot video recorder platform that uses any phone or tablet. After video recording my chemistry 121 course using the SWIVL robot and creating an iTunes U course, students have the opportunity to learn chemistry from any location. SWIVL is powerful tool for self-directed learning, student observation and assessment, course content review, teacher and student reflection.
