Digital Learning in the English Classroom

A session at BIT15 - Bring IT,Together 2015

Friday 6th November, 2015

10:00am to 10:50am (EST)

Amy and Jamie spent the 2014-2015 year participating in an innovative program called the "Digital Learning Project." The focus of the project is to bring together passionate educators to "do English class differently." In a group of five schools in a variety of levels, ENG 1D, 1P, and 2D, the team co-planned and facilitated courses that centered on student voice and choice. Using a blended learning model, the teachers gave the students control to collaborate and focus on learning rather than marks.
