Innovative Learning Plan on a PageInnovative Learning Plan on a Page

District Focus: CCSD59 students must be prepared to thrive in a constantly evolving technological landscape. Zip codes and borders no longer determine the learning opportunities, skills and careers that students can access. The ISTE Standards for Students are designed to empower student agency and ensure that learning is a student-driven process of exploration, creativity and discovery no matter where they or their teachers are in their learning trajectory.*

Goal 1: Agency: Student learning experiences will allow for student choice, control, and ownership in their learning.
Actionables
  • Empowered Learning: Students leverage technology to take an active role in choosing, achieving and demonstrating competency in their learning goals, informed by the learning sciences.
  • Digital Citizenship: Students engage in positive, safe, legal and ethical behavior when using technology, including social interactions online or when using networked devices.
  • Student Portfolios: Students articulate and set personal learning goals, develop strategies leveraging technology to achieve them and reflect on the learning process itself to improve learning outcomes.
Measures
  • Evidence of Learning Maps usage that contains genuine student choice and digital citizenship components.
  • Proficient use of adopted Student Learning Profile tool.
  • Proficient use of modern learning strategies like choice boards, digital safety, & summative learning celebrations.
Support & Coaching
  • Administrators, Instructional Coaching Team and Library Resource Center Teachers
  • CCSD59 Professional Learning Time and Modern Professional Learning Resources
Goal 2: Partnerships: Student learning experiences will support collaborative learning at the local and global level.
Actionables
  • Partnerships: Students use collaborative technologies to work with others, including peers, experts or community members, to amplify learning opportunities.
  • Feedback: Students use technology to seek feedback that informs and improves their learning and demonstrates their understandings in a variety of ways.
  • Service Learning: Students explore local and global issues and use collaborative technologies to work with others to investigate solutions.
Measures
  • Evidence of Learning Maps usage that contains student partnership components throughout the learning experience.
  • Evidence of various strength-based learner feedback.
  • Participation in local and global educational events such as: Global Read Aloud and Connected Educator Month
Support & Coaching
  • Instructional Coaching Team
  • CCSD59 Professional Learning Time and Modern Professional Learning Resources
Goal 3: Technology: Facilitate effective use of current and emerging digital tools to promote modern learning.
Actionables
  • Technology: Demonstrate fluency in both hardware and software systems to collaborate with students, staff, families and community members using digital tools and resources.
  • Computer Science: Integrate 21C education components, such as STEM and coding, into learning experiences to provide students with preparatory skills for 21st century careers.
  • Professional Learning: Continually improve professional practice by participating and engaging in modern professional learning practices.
Measures
  • Evidence of proficient use of district devices and adopted tools, such as: GSuite, Learning Lab and TeachBoost
  • Proficient use of adopted communication and support tool: CCSD59 Teacher Pages
  • Proficient use of adopted STEM and Coding program: Code to the Future
  • Participation in modern professional learning, such as: Twitter Chats and EdCamps
Support & Coaching
  • Administrators, Instructional Coaching Team and Building Technology Assistants
  • CCSD59 Professional Learning Time and Modern Professional Learning Resources
