Increasing the use of computers is making learning with, and about, digital devices essential. It is preparing my students to participate in society and the future workforce.
Digital devices have the potential to expand and enhance interaction in the classroom, enable more real-world activities, improve learning environments, and engage students in new and exciting ways. Opportunities for collaboration and problem-solving are expanded beyond the classroom in an online environment. It is really exciting for students, encouraging more on-task behaviour, and exciting for me as a teacher.A learner-centred curriculum that includes 1:1 digital devices supports greater flexibility in learning pathways, empowering students to learn in a more personalised way with increased control over their own learning. This can help students engage more deeply in their learning and lift their achievement.
Here is a short documentary put together by Jason Bloor about our journey at Auroa School. Enjoy!
Have a great week in paradise!
