Critical ThinkingInstructional technology Facilitator - Our Learning Lab is a flexible, collaborative, shared school environment that teachers utilize to enhance their classroom curriculum experiences. Don't forget to go on your google calendar to reserve your time slot to bring your class to learn in the lab. This is no longer a computer lab but a space to learn math, writing, social studies, science, reading, elements of the arts. It is packed with flexible seating, creative learning materials, a projector, a chromecast equipped TV. Come borrow the makey makeys, OSMOS, maker space materials, google cardboard, invite Tanya, (your ITF) and/or Andrea Trowell to teach with you...let's keep the lab full of learning every day!

Coding - What is Coding -- When your kid starts talking about loops, go-to commands, and branches, it probably means she's learning to code, and that's a very good thing. This week is Computer Science Week (Dec 5-8). Hour of Code is being hosted all over the world. Coding is cross curricular and does not discriminate among ages. It also should NOT be featured during this week only as it's benefits are far reaching and sustainable. Tanya would love to host some coding lessons with classes this week and/or in the near future with a commitment of a few hour long coding lessons with classes. Please email Tanya if you are willing to learn how coding with your class can enhance your lessons and support the learning with the 4Cs. Together you can work out a schedule that works for you.
