  • Video – 21st Century LearningHow can ADLC move schools towards an Inspiring Future for students? How can we be the place school go to help with systemic change? How can we offer efficiencies under tight budgets? How can we meet the diverse learning needs of Alberta’s changing population? How can we be agile and able to meet the rapidly changing curriculum to provide relevancy?
  • Our courses provide teachers the support they need to meet the need of their diverse learners. They can differentiate the assignments that are already built, there is text to speech on every page at no additional cost, the content contains engaging videos that have both captioning and transcripts, fort can be easily changed and enlarged. And most importantly the work can be self paced to go as fast as you can but as slow as you must. This is differentiation. ADLC provides that for teachers and students. Success makerImagine learning.

  • This collaborative partnership with Northland School Division aligns with ADLC’s goal: Sparking Student Engagement, Diversity in Distributed Learning, as it aims to improve student academic, social and intellectual engagement, as well as achievement and completion rates in Northland School Division.  Strategies:1. Assisted Flipped Classroom:  Provide just in time videos based on collaboration with the classroom teacher and ADLC, to provide instruction for students which enables self-paced learning.2. Supportive Chat:  Provide support from an ADLC teacher during class time via chat technologies which enable students to communicate in a safe environment by a means of communication they prefer.3. Weekly Video Conferencing:  To improve relationships between the class and the teacher, weekly VC sessions will help students and the distant teacher get to know each other and create a connection between the in class teacher and the ADLC teacher at a distance. 4. Atlantis Remixed Virtual Worlds Project:  Using the Atlantis Remixed platform which is an immersive environment (virtual world), students will complete an interdisciplinary “journey” by completing quests in a collaborative online environment. The unit is “Mesa Verde” which will be linked to Language Arts, social studies and science Alberta Programs of Studies.http://atlantisremixed.org/
