It also added engagement, creativity, curiosity, elevate their voice in learning and decision making. Students were in control what they want to learn, how they study, how they showcase their learning to their peers. The teacher worked as a facilitator throughout the process. 

School: Silver Pines P.S.
Title: re-Designing Science
Segment Description: Grade 8 students engaged in a design thinking project for their Fluids Unit, focusing on the use of hydraulics and pneumatics. They had the opportunity to design, iterate, and build a prototype of their choosing. The reflection and thinking that developed was beyond anything expected. Students began to understand and embrace failure; and even started celebrating it.  This failure was quickly accepted as success, as students learned that without it, their designs could not have been developed.

School: Fossil Hill P.S.
Title: Making Student Learning Visible at Fossil Hill P.S.
Segment Description: After their teacher attended a Digital Literacy Network (DLN) workshop, students and staff at Fossil Hill P.S. learned how to use EquatIO and Flipgrid. Students were eager to learn and became the “teachers” with their peers. When students were interviewed about EquatIO in a DLN video, they stated that they felt more confident, and that it helps them with their thinking.  The students have also said that using Flipgrid feels safe to them. This technology learning has enabled my students to not only be leaders with a voice, but has helped them to understand that modern learning can be flexible for other academic areas.
