Multi-Year Road Map

Rationale

The implementation of Personalized electronic Blended Learning (PeBL) is not a one size fits all process. Sun West schools are currently at various stages of addressing 21st Century learning. School leaders needs to assess the current capacity of their school in addressing the needs of PeBL and develop a personalized school plan in accordance to those findings.

 Implementation

Groundwork for the implementation of PeBL in schools can be traced to the adoption of Sun West School Division Policy 18 21st Century Competencies by the Sun West School Division Board of Education, the focus on 21st century learning, adoption of technology infused and blended learning in classrooms.
