ISTE Certified Eduators From Victoria International School of Sharjah
Head of Teaching and Learning
Victoria International School of Sharjah
I think all learning should be student centered and thus digital pedagogies should be authentic, with real life application, reflecting student voice, leadership and giving them a sense of ownership in their learning journey. I have a Digital Leaders Committee of students grade 6-12 that advise the use and implementation of digital technologies, as well as driving and designing whole school collaboration through edutech. The results are that we have engaging events that represent the student view and staff design courses that meet student needs.
