One of Glenlawn's goals is to guide students to be responsible local, global and digital citizens. We strive to provide our students with opportunities to develop and practice the skills, knowledge and behaviours that will allow them the greatest chance of being a successful member of society.
We believe that technology integration is an essential aspect to creating a personalized learning experience for our students. In order to begin our journey into personalizing the educational experience we hope to have our Grade 9-11 students bring their own device for the 2017/2018 school year. This will allow students to explore specific topics with more depth, access resources with greater efficiency, further develop critical thinking skills, learn and apply the behaviours of good digital citizens, and express and share their learning in more creative, modern and engaging ways. Through the use of technology we hope to help students create something new that was not possible prior to full technology integration.
