I will continue my role of Technology Coach at IRJC. My primary role is to assist in the purposeful integration of technology into learning at IRJC.
Our school is committed to providing our students with an education that prepares them for their future. Digital media and technology are evolving at a very rapid pace, bringing with them extraordinary opportunities for our students.
IRJC students are using the immense power of the Internet and mobile
technology to explore, learn, connect and create in ways never before
imagined. At IRJC we work through digital citizenship lessons beginning in the first week of September. These lessons develop a strong understanding of what digital citizenship is and helps students be safe and responsible while learning on-line.
IRJC students are poised to step into the online world of collaboration, communication and learning. Students will have access to opportunities and tools that will enhance their at-school experiences which are all directly linked to specific outcomes in the Alberta Program of Studies. IRJC students are invited (teacher-to-teacher basis) to use a person learning device (ipad,
iPad, Tablets, Laptop or Chromebook) in the classroom to help create,
explore and share their learning.
Bringing a personal device (BYOD) to school gives our students the opportunity to use it in class as a learning tool. These tools are a
“Gateway to knowledge and developing 21st Century skills”, such as
collaborating, communication and critical thinking.
Students will discover how to further use their devices as a learning tool that supports our excellent learning environments at IRJC. We look forward to our continued learning journey this year.
