New frontiers for new learning

School Council Forum follow up

smAt the West School Council forum in April, there was a presentation on social media for parents. The presentation was shared by one of our board staff and he has kindly offered to share it with our community. The presentation shared some of the challenges and cautions for all of us with regards to technology and concluded with some of the valuable ways we can use social media to positively impact the work we do.

One way our board is working on supporting students and teachers with these new frontiers for new learning is through what we call our Knowledge Skills and Attitudes standards, namely:

1. Creativity and Innovation
2. Communication and Collaboration
3. Research and Information Fluency
4. Critical Thinking, Problem Solving, and Decision
5. Digital Citizenship
6. Technology Operations and Concepts

The notion of digital citizenship is worth careful consideration as we all work together to support our learners in developing safe and responsible uses of technology.

We also thank our police partners in York Region for their tips for parents on “Be Net Aware”.

Let us know what you think of the presentation document.
