Learning and Technology Policy Framework 2013

Personalized learning encompasses meaningful connections, engaging learning experiences and flexible learning environments that support choice, collaboration, student voice, and shared ownership in learning.

For example, peer and teacher reviews can be embedded digitally in student work; students can monitor their own progress through online portfolios or simple spreadsheets; discussions can take the shape of blog interactions, wiki entries or online threaded conversations; and collaborative digital learning spaces can offer opportunities for important interactions and feedback.

Students who are self-directed do well in school and in life.

STJ iBlogs opens the door to choice by providing students with "multiple ways to learn, communicate, collaborate, ask important questions, solve problems and demonstrate what they know and can do.

Working collaboratively on complex tasks increases and deepens student learning.

Students working collaboratively outperform students who are working competitively or individually when the tasks are moderately or highly complex. Technology enables collaboration in school and beyond. For example, technology enables document exchanges, joint work on documents in shared workspaces where multiple students can work simultaneously, wikis, blogs, texting, chat rooms and communities of interest.

STJ Prayer

Lord, make me an instrument of your peace,
Where there is hatred, let me sow love;
where there is injury, pardon;
where there is doubt, faith;
where there is despair, hope;
where there is darkness, light;
where there is sadness, joy;
O Divine Master, grant that I may not so much seek to be consoled as to console;
to be understood as to understand;
to be loved as to love.

For it is in giving that we receive;
it is in pardoning that we are pardoned;
and it is in dying that we are born to eternal life.
