See how students use green screens Ozobots and Osmo to innovate create and enhance their learning. iPad Kiosks It started as a project to encourage students at Basinview Drive Community School to develop a deeper love for reading. Grade 2 teacher Sheila McMullen came up with an idea to have students create book reviews on video using iPads. The reviews are available to the entire school to access on a set of iPad kiosks in the library. Not only has the project engaged Ms. McMullens students in reading writing and technical skills it has also allowed for students in the school whose first language is not English to access books in their mother tongue thanks to family and community member involvement. Storied Math Citadel High Schools Math Department Head Jocelyn Procopio loves to find and solve the math that exists in everyday situations. Students however do not always share in her joy along the mathematical journey. Ms. Procopio says students often complain about word problems but she says the real-life story behind the math is what makes it interesting and engaging. Thats why she recently launched a math quest called Storied Math. Ms. Procopios goal is to encourage others to discover the beauty in mathematics and to apply it to achieve great things in life Augmented Reality In Greg Doyles Grade 7 Sciences Humaines class at Madeline Symonds Middle School students are using modern technology to engage in Canadian history.
