I Wonder… -how learning would look different if it was based on student choice. -how student engagement would change with enrichment courses. -how changing “homework” could change student learning. Reimagine teaching and learning…As we prepare students for the future, our focus shifts to recognizing how technology will be an integral part of their education and lives. With a plethora of information at their fingertips, students are able to explore interests beyond what is being taught in the classroom. Whatever it is they wonder about, they can learn about. In this session, participants will learn how Jackson Avenue School is using the KidOYO platform, to engage students in choice learning and homework through a variety of “courses” that have been created. Each course contains a group of lessons that guide students through learning on a particular topic. Their learning involves watching videos, reading articles, analyzing diagrams, along with a variety of other technology based activities. Students are asked to synthesize their learning in order to complete a “challenge” as the culmination of each course. As they earn badges for completing these challenges, students build their digital portfolios. In this presentation, participants will be guided through examples of a course and have the opportunity to create their own challenges.
