Thinking, Learning, Creating

Learning comes alive when students create new media artifacts that reflect their learning, passions, ideas, and personalities. This learning station will focus on creative ways to tap into these student passions to reach educational goals and build a lasting love of learning. While these ideas will translate to many tools, I will focus on ideas for Frames (K-12) and Pixie (JK-3) which are available to educators in Ontario through OSAPAC.
