Policy Direction 1 from the Alberta Education Learning & Technology Policy Framework calls upon school authorities to "establish a vision for technology-supported, student-centred learning" for all students. With the multitude of new technologies, combined with the challenges of a diverse inclusive student population, this can pose a constant challenge for school leadership in knowing which technologies to adopt and how to use them with purpose in a safe, appropriate manner that furthers student learning. In this session, participants will explore the many components of digital literacy/digital citizenship and will use these elements to examine current and emerging technologies and practices in a meaningful context to begin to ground themselves in developing a vision for student-centred learning with technology and a process for evaluating technology use and integrating student digital literacy skills moving forward.
