All schools use technology as a tool to differentiate and personalize instruction, increase academic rigor, and build student ownership of learning using a portfolio of student-centered school models.
Our mission is to prepare all students to be digital learners who use technology as a tool to graduate ready for success in college and careers.
The ISTE Standards for Students are designed to empower student voice and ensure that learning is a student-driven process of exploration, creativity and discovery no matter where they or their teachers are in the thoughtful integration of ed tech. There are seven modules for students.
Dr.Puentedura is the creator of the SAMR model. SAMR is reflective tool that teachers can apply in order to transform teaching and learning from modification to redefinition. In this webinar, Dr. Puentedura addresses the different misconceptions around his work by sharing his current research which compares the SAMR model to Bloom’s Taxonomy.
Building Collaboration...One Idea at a Time!
by James Centeno
As last school year came to an end, students from three LAUSD 1:1 Instructional Technology Initiative schools, 42nd Street Elementary, Humphreys Avenue Elementary, and San Pascual STEAM Magnet, had the opportunity to collaborate in real-time across campuses thanks to a wonderful app named Padlet. As you can imagine, learning experiences that create opportunities for collaboration offer students a wealth of benefits such as reinforcing key speaking and listening skills, and exposure to multiple perspectives, which we know by now, is at the cornerstone of a Common Core education.
