What is the purpose of Provincial Classroom Based Projects?
To support classroom teachers and school based teams employing personalized learning strategies and resources that utilize technologies to provide student access to their curriculum and meaningfully include all students in the classroom environment.
We invite classroom teachers, school based teams and district groups to apply for consultation, training, and technology support for curricular based projects that explore the use of technology to realize students’ learning goals. As funding for provincially coordinated classroom-based projects is limited, applications are reviewed as indicated in the specific project guidelines. Please see our Current Projects Available for Application area for information on currently available projects. Please direct any questions about these projects to Elyssa Derban.
This project group is using an inquiry approach to explore the use of Classroom Suite 5.1 in their primary classroom. Classroom Suite 5.1 is a literacy and numeracy support software for use with students with emerging literacy and math skills. Planning, training and technology offered by SET-BC have been designed to support the conditions necessary for building capacity using this software tool within an existing classroom setting.

This project group is using an inquiry approach to explore the use of ‘coding’ as a vehicle for blending the new BC curriculum with strategies that support all students’ learning. Project teams regularly participate in a provincially facilitated community of practice which will culminate in a celebration event in late spring 2017. Teams that would like more information on coding and the implementation of the ADST (Applied Design, Skills and Technology) curriculum through computational thinking can visit our Coding in the Classroom area.

This project group is exploring innovative ways in which technology can be used to increase and support students’ access to the curriculum in a diverse classroom setting. Teams are participating in a provincially facilitated community of practice throughout the 2016-2017 school year. Past innovative project designs and outcomes can be viewed on the Classroom Technology Projects webpage. (Applications closed end of May 2016)
