Technology is Key at Sudbury Catholic Summer School


July 28, 2015 - The goals of the Sudbury Catholic District School Board's summer learning programs are to make a difference for students experiencing literacy and numeracy challenges, minimize summer learning loss, and increase literacy and numeracy achievements. In the program we use engaging and upbeat strategies such as technology to capture and hold student's attention.
Pictured is a student who is using an accessory for the iPad called Osmo to learn about words. Students either in a group or by themselves spell words using tiles which are transmitted to the iPad. Students self correct when mistakes are made and celebrate as they move forward. Its been known to happen that students get so excited that they break out in a celebratory dance.
