What Happens When We Give Students a Voice?
(and won the Demo Slam 🙂
The week in Alberta, Canada was capped off with an energetic Student Summit at Black Gold Regional School District in LeDuc. One hundred and fifty students coded, animated, modded, taught, learned and and engaged in a learning experience like none other.
The event culminated with a group of little wizards creating a district wide student tech team website. Collaboratively, students researched domain names, designed logos, and built a custom website for their school board with links, resources, and lots of selfies!
The whole thing can be found at www.studentmagic.org
I was amazed at how quickly that one idea, forty-five minutes and thirty amazing students could take the building blocks of a transformational project that will help teachers, give back to the community and ultimately provide a platform for all the students to learn.
So, what are you waiting for – go get started!! Ask the EdTechTeam how you can bring an extraordinary student learning experience like this to your district.
