The purpose of Educational Technology is to promote technology integration into planning for teaching, learning, and engagement. By providing educational technology, students in our schools will acquire the skills and knowledge needed to succeed in the 21st century. By training teachers on how to use technology in the classroom, and through in-class demonstrations with student interaction, teachers and students see first-hand how technology can be integrated into the classroom environment. Training is available through workshops (one-on-one, small or large group sessions) and/or classroom visits.
For the 2017-2018 school year, schools have been provided with: SMART Board training; Robotics/Coding in the classroom; iPads in the classroom; teacher support and uploads of school rolls for Mathletics; presentations on Coding and Robotics to school committee (La Ronge) and PAGC principals; assisting other consultants in the integration of technology into their programs (i.e. Language and Culture group’s use of iMovie in their focus groups), and; a focus group on Educational Technology in the Classroom (April). We are hoping to increase the number of EdTech focus groups for the 2018-2019 school year.
The PAGC Information Technology (IT) Services department was started in 2004 in response to the growing demand for qualified technicians and developers in the Grand Council as well as in the First Nations Communities.
Information Technology Services provides support for all departments in the Council as well as many of the community Health Clinics &Band Offices.
Our support covers a broad range of services including:
-website and database development
