In this session participants will ...explore strategies and the overarching idea of teaching our students technology skills to facilitate adaptability in the 21st Century student. The goal is that both students and staff can adapt easily from tool to tool based on their proficiency with technology skills and knowledge of other similar tools. Our district currently offers both Office 365 and Google Apps for Education at different building levels which requires that students learn a variety of different skills and become adaptable to the different tools available district-wide. This presentation will be a presentation/discussion of ideas on how to support our teachers in becoming more adaptable to various tools as well as teaching students that word processing, presentation, spreadsheet, data collecting, etc are all skills that once mastered, can be executed using any available tool at their disposal. Presenters will also tie into how this philosophy ties into Competency Based Learning model which our building has implemented in all subjects for the 2017-2018 school year. Come join this collaborative and progressive discussion! (Presenter(s): Nikola Bureau, Technology Integrator, SAU 5, and Nicholas Bellows, SAU5)
