About

The AMDSB EdTech Learning Community was originally founded in 2013 to provide a collaborative learning space for members of the 2013-2014 TLLP Project Team. Our project, Blogging as Digital Portfolios, continues to provide students with a balance of inquiry-based learning opportunities leveraged by the power of a digital learning platform (Edublogs) to improve student outcomes (competencies) in the areas of 6C’s* (communication, collaboration, creativity, critical thinking & problem solving, citizenship, character). As teachers continue to learn how to design, develop, and integrate deep learning tasks into their classroom programs to transform learning into high levels of achievement for students, learners are engaging in learning partnerships with other students and global learning partners to start conversations, find answers to their questions, document their learning, make a difference, take action, and drive change.

Teacher Learning and Leadership Program for Experienced Teachers (TLLP), 2013-2014 

In 2014-2015, our TLLP Project Team expanded to include a 10 more teachers as we continued moving forward with our learning and implementation of blogging as pedagogy in our schools. By the end of the school year over 250 teachers in the AMDSB joined us in our learning journey and are have now integrated blogging as a platform for learning board wide to improve student achievement in literacy and maximize student outcomes in the areas of 6Cs (communication, collaboration, creativity, critical thinking & problem solving, citizenship, and character). The EdTech Learning Community blog has become THE collaborative hub for blogging as pedagogy in the AMDSB, supporting hundreds of teachers during the stages of technology implementation, and throughout the process of learning new literacies.

By the end of the 2015-2016 school year, almost every K-8 teacher and student in the AMDSB will be using blogging as a platform for learning. We hope you will join our conversations and share your stories, reflections, favourite resources, and thoughts about teaching and learning with technology!
