Always Learning at Arcadia

On Monday, January 30, 2017, the faculty at Arcadia Elementary received professional development training on incorporating technology and gaming into instruction as a motivational tool. Dr. Robert E. Mayben, Instructional Technology Specialist at the UA In-Service Center facilitated the workshop on Breakout EDU. Breakout EDU games teach critical thinking, teamwork, complex problem solving, and can be used in all content areas. One component of Breakout Edu is access to online digital problem solving games.  TCS is in the process of changing the way teachers teach and students learn as part of our strategic plan. Moving forward, we will have more technology resources to offer the students and a tool box of ideas to utilize the new technology.  A key component of the Digital Transformation is the implementation of a one-to-one (1:1) device model. In a 1:1 model, all students are provided an electronic device such as a laptop, Chromebook, or tablet. This will connect technology to all areas of student learning.  The teachers enjoyed the workshop and were excited about the possibilities of utilizing this strategy to ignite an excitement of learning in their students.
