We had one of our Digital Sandbox for Administrator sessions last week. You can see more information on the other sessions here, here, and here. The most recent session was about our new district website and sharing platform. Sharepoint allows us to share as a district in ways we have not been able to in the past. Not only can we share with one another, and only one another, if we choose, but we can also choose to share with the students in our class, or we could even share with the world. We could also create private or public groups in which we could share opening. These are all very powerful options.
Once more people begin to use SurreySchools.ca, it will become more and more useful and more and more powerful.
One of our main purposes to demonstrating some of the capabilities of SurreySchools.ca was to have people realize how powerful it can be to share with others. In doing so, it was important to share some of the main parts of our new platform and some examples/possibilities of how to share with each of these components.
In addition to presenting our administrators with information about our Sharepoint platform, we also provided our administrators with something even more important – time. After the brief presentation (below), everyone was given time to explore, ask questions, and create in SurreySchools.ca – together. This togetherness, experimenting, sharing, and exploring together, is imperative in the development of our community of learners.
We are the lead learners in our schools and we are proud of it! It is when we share our learning, our mistakes, our challenges, and our triumphs that we get better – together.
Here is the presentation from our Digital Sandbox Session last week. Enjoy!
