For the 2021/22 school year, the Information & Communication Technology Department will be prioritizing the following areas in addition to the regular functions handled within the department:

  1. Universal Support for Learning through Technology
    1. Through the ILT, small-group workshops, staff meetings, and the support of schools’ technology resource teachers, co-plan/co-teach/co-assess to incorporate the MAP into all classes. This includes synthesizing elements of the MAP using age-appropriate platforms (Seesaw/All About Me K-3, Spaces 4-9, My Blueprint 10-12). 
    2. Using after-school workshops, school-based release time, and professional development opportunities, co-plan/co-teach/co-assess to best utilize blended learning environments for the purpose of equity and differentiation.
    3. Through the ICT department and Ed Leadership, provide school administrators with a framework of a BYOD (Bring Your Own Device) model for schools (personalization and equity).

  1. Critical Thinking and Competency Development Focus
    1. In collaboration with the technology coordinator (ILT), co-plan/co-teach/co-assess with teaching staff to enhance computational learning opportunities for K-6 students.
    2. Through a district-based online repository of short video clips and articles, provide teachers with a means of developing capacity for the integration of technology into teaching and learning using the Substitution Augmentation Modification Redefinition (SAMR) model, including using technology as a means to access other Pathways to Learning.
