Learning and Technology: e-Learning2
As a school district serving more than 8,300 students and employing 1,200+, we have a serious obligation to ensure we are preparing and planning for any emergency that creates large-scale impact to the breadth of community members and campus operations. Sometimes, this means exploring alternative instructional delivery methods, many of which will include technology.
When our district is closed for face-to-face learning, we will engage students with learning experiences that continue the planned learning program and help them to stay connected with teachers and classmates.
Every day in Edina Public Schools, students use digital media technologies to:
- Explore Content in interactive, hands-on and engaged approaches to traditional methods for deeper learning and skills development.
- Engage with Content through collaboration and participation following multiple pathways.
- Express Learning in ways that demonstrate mastery and have the potential to be published to a wider, authentic audience.
- Offer interactive, hands-on and engaged approaches to traditional curriculum for deeper learning and skills development.
- Provide students opportunities to communicate with people across the globe.
- Bring real world education to the classroom, empowering students with critical skills they need to thrive in a rapidly changing, culturally diverse, global society.
- Maximize district resources, including funding, time, space and natural resources.
Our technology vision guides our work in unleashing students’ passion for lifelong learning, empowering and enhancing excellent teaching, engaging families in a partnership for education, and demonstrating excellence in media and technology support staff. This technology vision will continue to be updated as part of our 2020-25 District Strategic Plan.
Our technology integration specialists work to ensure technology is meeting the needs of teachers and students.
