Nine of our tech savvy students joined Ms. Parekh and Mr. Tamblyn at the Youth Edtech Summit ("YES") on April 19th.
YES is a student centered forum where YRDSB students and staff get to experience a multitude of different methods for engaging technology in their personal learning. This is an exciting leadership opportunity for students to learn and share their understanding around the curriculum and technology. They get to experiment and demonstrate cool ways to use technology in their learning while having creative learning sessions with and for other students.
Inspire and Create sessions were offered by students for students on a wide variety of topics encompassing the meaningful and purposeful use of technology tools, devices and software. Our WPS students were mesmerized with the many examples they saw at the summit and had lots of fun trying them out and collaborating with other students from different schools.
