Who we are. . .
Holy Trinity Catholic High School
"Someday, in the distant future, our grandchildren's grandchildren will develop a new equivalent of our classrooms. They will spend many hours in front of boxes with fires glowing within. May they have the wisdom to know the difference between light and knowledge." ~ Plato
This is where we were…
This is were we went. . . We adapted technology and hit the photocopier Killing many trees in the process
Then we found the solution . . . This is one of our students checking her teacher’s course moodle site to find lessons and homework.
Life Before Moodle
Network Notes drive
How we found moodle and got started
ECOO – Educational Computing Organization of Ontario
Installed moodle to our domain
Found good tech support
In the beginning. . .
Introduced moodle; and its power, to our tech savvy mover-and-shaker teachers and let them try it
Word began to spread
Moodle sold it’s self
Teachers saw the power, benefits and flexibility of moodle
We offered in-house PD
Students and parents began asking for it
Top Uses of Moodle from HT Teachers
Convincing the Majority
Administration expected each teacher to have a moodle for at least one course per semester
Now it is an expectation from students, parents and administration that teacher use and update moodle regularly.

Moodle has become an integral part of our students success program.
