Student Produced Learning Objects

In response to the very successful Digital Learning Symposium hosted by the Waterloo Region District School Board in the fall to share best instructional practices, innovative thinking and frame some next action steps for each site, there will be a series of blog posts published over the next four months to share our collective learnings and thinking in a broader and open manner. The posts will highlight the sessions presented and shared over the three day event to raise awareness and ignite new conversations across the system.

The first post in this series features Anne Doelman sharing her learning journey to considering student produced learning objects. In the presentation, Anne highlights her personal experiences in considering consuming vs. creating, the importance of trial and error, building on the Futures Forum project experience and questioning the roles of students and teachers in the learning space. Perhaps the notion of “prototype mindset” will capture your interest.

Enjoy Anne’s presentation.

As part of your reflective practice, consider a next step or action you will take based on something that sparked your interest in the presentation and take an active role in sharing this resource with others.

On a final note for this post, it is important to acknowledge the work of the Digital Learning Symposium steering committee for the planning of this important event and also the work of the Sir John A. MacDonald students who captured the learning of the symposium in preparation for this project.
