Connecting students and online tools – JH Learning Commons

This post is awesome! If you are a JH teacher and you are wondering how to engage with the new Learning Commons, take a look at this! If you want to help your students integrate their learning with online tools, this can get you started.

I have never shared any of my teaching struggles or joys with an audience, so I really hope that some of this makes sense.

I invited an Art teacher to come work with me, and by the end of the first project a second Art teacher was hot on her heels!

Me: Do you want to come to the Learning Commons and we can do a lesson on trending artists? We can use our new iPads!

Art Teacher: I don’t have a prep this semester, and I’m pretty overloaded, but maybe next semester.

Me:  So bring in your kids and I will do the lesson, you don’t have to prep a thing

Art Teacher: Hmmmm… ok then… I’ll bring all 3 of my senior blocks

Me: bahaha, well now you’re talking !!

If you are interested in how we did these projects read on, but if not then you can just enjoy…

I am an educational leader, a photographer, a thinker, and a parent. We live in a world of abundance on the West Coast of Canada. I learn together with wonderful people in my home, community, work, and church. My goal for my students is that they leave school with confidence based on demonstrated excellence in at least one domain of learning, and with the life, employment and thinking skills to open the many doors of their future.
