How are we connecting students to their community?  To the land?  To each other?  Children entering Kindergarten today will live and work in a world profoundly different.  Students in our schools today need to learn in ways far different from the manner and environment we learned in.  Students are not recipients of learning, they are the actors for tomorrow.

The BC curriculum envisions this need to foster different ways for students to learn and share their knowledge, but how do we transform learning experiences at the school level?  How do we ensure that technology-supported online and distributed learning experiences are profoundly personalized, learner-centric, social and inclusive, highly structured and well designed?  How do we reorganize, reschedule, restructure, and rethink learning?

Join the Cowichan Team as they reflect their story and journey in pursuit of this change.  Learn how the Key Elements for Effective Learning Environments became a driver for their pursuit of inclusive, personal learning for students in the district.  Reflect on how their journey compares with your own as the Cowichan team shares their story.
