Alberta Education – Learning and Technology Policy Framework

Interesting Links

The Learning and Technology Policy Framework (2013) is a major step towards realizing one of the four policy shifts identified by Inspiring Education. Policy Shift 4: Technology to Support the Creation and Sharing of Knowledge is critical to achieving the vision of supporting students to become engaged thinkers and ethical citizens, with an entrepreneurial spirit.

When digital technology first emerged as a classroom resource, it was primarily a tool for teachers to present information and to communicate with students and parents.  Policy Shift 4 describes the need to move towards classrooms in which students, themselves, are using technology to support their learning.

As Inspiring Education describes it, “Ultimately, the power of technology should be harnessed to support innovation and discovery, not simply to aid teaching.  We need to engage learners to use these new technologies as designers and creators of knowledge.”
