The Implementation Impact of an LMS on the Classroom

A session at Bring IT, Together [ECOO & OASBO]

Friday 25th October, 2013

12:00pm to 12:45pm (EST)

In the spring of 2012 we set off on our journey to find a better way for our teachers and students to interact online. One would think that at this point in time this would be something that we could take for granted, but in our school it wasn’t. In conjunction with our BYOD launch for Gr. 7-12’s, we began running a pilot year using a new LMS- Haiku. We had hoped to have 10 - 15 teachers give it a try to help in our decision making process but to our great pleasure we ended up with about 60 teachers all using the new LMS regularly and happily! We went from 0 to 80% usage in about 6 months and we haven’t looked back. In this session we’ll talk about how our LMS is used in our Grade 3 - 12 environment. We’ll briefly outline the reasons we felt we needed an LMS and how we selected the best LMS for us. The bulk of the session will be spent giving examples of how our LMS is used by our teachers in the different subject disciplines and environments (BYOD and non-BYOD) and how our IT team helped to support this profound transition to a digitized learning environment.
