BSD rolls out technology plan

The Brandon School Division is in the preliminary stages of implementing its technology and learning in the classroom plan.

Kelli Boklaschuk, BSD’s communication and technology specialist, gave a brief presentation to trustees during a recent school board meeting detailing technology-based projects in three different local schools.

Boklaschuk said the projects at Valleyview, Alexander and Meadows schools, completed over the last two months, were all about giving students a chance to choose what they were learning.

“This past year has been very exciting in regards to technology and learning,” she said. “Every year we’re going to be adding schools to the clusters and it’s kind of a rollout plan over multiple years.”

One of the projects included a group of Grades 5-6 students at Meadows designing their own video games. Grades 3-4 and Grades 7-8 students at Alexander also worked together to develop vocabulary videos, music and pictures to represent different clothing items in French.

“It was interesting to see the technology and the arts come together,” Boklaschuk said, adding more details surrounding the division’s implementation plan will be revealed as time goes on.

However, every school will be included.

“This is a shift towards a more student voice and choice opportunity in classes, so the model is going to look different in every school.”
