Technology Calibration Survey

technology

As we reach the halfway point in our school year, we are doing an incredible job utilizing technology to facilitate teaching and learning at Frontier.  Thanks to the innovation of our staff, we have discovered numerous excellent resources to support learning experience.

Something I have noticed from parents, however, is some confusion around the abundance of programs that are being used.  Mathematically, it makes sense – if a student has 5 teachers who all use applications/programs in a variety of ways, I can see the potential for confusion.

As we head into 2018-2019, we will want to become more aligned in what students use – across the board – so we can support one another, support students, and support their families.

In an effort to see who is using what (and how often), please take the survey below:

I am asking for everyone to please take this survey – it is critical to our planning moving forward.  Thank you!

Monday Tuesday Motivation

Today’s motivation comes from a video highlighting an example of what happens when kids realize that their are no limitations in what they can achieve.  A bit of a tearjerker!
