As educators, we want to make a positive difference in the lives of students. Our mission at Maryvale is to provide a safe, rich, and stimulating learning environment where students feel empowered, connected, and valued.
We devote ourselves to learning so that we can teach in ways that support and nurture each and every student’s social, emotional and intellectual development. Ultimately, we want our students to become confident, adaptable and skilled learners so that they will be able to face the challenges they will encounter as they move through various stages in their lives. As we promote the natural curiosity in our young students, we aim to nurture their love of learning into adulthood.
This blog is dedicated to learning and teaching with technology. It recognizes the ubiquitous nature of technology in our society, and the importance of bringing learning through technology into the classroom. At Maryvale we recognize the extraordinary opportunities technology can offer in promoting the concepts of universal design and differentiated instruction to support all learners. Finally, we recognize the growing significance of information technology and the importance of providing ongoing opportunities for critical thinking in an expanding digital world.
This blog also lives because of a conviction that sharing plays a critical role in transforming learning environments into collaborative learning centres. Its aim is to inspire and support.
