CAN/AM EdTech Spotlight
Innovation in the Classroom, October 3, 2022
The 2022–23 school year is underway, and MIT's instructors and teaching assistants are back in the classroom and laboratories. Each time they supplement their in-class lecture with a video, organize a new learning exercise, or even post their syllabi on Canvas, Sheryl Barnes hopes MIT Open Learning's Residential Education group made their jobs easier.
“Faculty have a lot of demands on their time, but they are also deeply committed to their students,” says Barnes, director of digital learning for residential education. “Our job is to help them optimize use of their own time to maximize learning for their students.”
Canadian EdTech Industry Spotlight
The K-12 Cyber Awareness Month (CAM) campaign has been developed to help Ontario school boards promote safer and more secure practices across their school communities when using digital technologies and the internet by promoting best practices in cyber safety, cyber security, and online privacy in K-12.
The campaign is an adaptation of the internationally recognized October Cyber Security Awareness Month which is often mentioned in the media. ECNO, Ontario school boards and the Ministry of Education have developed this K-12 cyber awareness campaign for both English- and French-language school boards in Ontario.
Quote of the Month
"When the pandemic hit, teachers were thrown into the deep end and quickly adapted over two years in remote and hybrid classroom settings.  As a result, teachers now have an earned comfort with digital tools in the classroom. In a recent report, nearly 90% of teachers said their ability to incorporate technology into instruction has improved, and 99% of teachers plan to continue using new tools and techniques that they adopted as a result of the pandemic."
