Case studies are rich sources of data, capturing both the process of inquiry with regard to a school’s particular focus for improvement, as well as the learning and observations obtained throughout the journey.
2018/2019 Case Studies
Focus: Can emerging technologies such as VR (virtual reality), AR (augmented reality) and 360 photography succeed in improving student engagement, foster deeper learning, and broaden students’ perspectives of the world? Can they be effectively used in Yukon classrooms (technical & logistics)?
Focus: Both in our own setting and getting out of our own settings, what do we see in innovative learning environments that is making a difference for students’ learning.
Focus: We created a Buddy System between Elementary and Middle School students, to build social connection and motivation for learning.
Focus: To increase student engagement in existing online learning opportunities (specifically English 10-12) through the development of a gamified framework.
Focus: On the First Peoples Principles of Learning: Learning is holistic, reflective, experiential, and relational (focused on connectedness, on reciprocal relationships, and a sense of place).
Focus: How will a cyclical based math approach, focusing on “Big Ideas”, in addition to the focus on developing a growth mindset and supporting families, have an impact on student achievement in numeracy as measured by the BC Performance Standards, District Math Assessment, and school-wide assessments?
Focus: Why do students essentially stop borrowing books for enjoyment in high school and what changes can I make at the intermediate level to improve student readership in Gr 8-12?
Focus: To increase students’ access, engagement, and output during Daily 5 literacy development through universal design for learning, to improve students’ capacity to use and integrate technology in their literacy development, and to support student reflection and improve students’ capacity to self-assess using the core competencies.
