Saskatoon Public School Division's Vision
for Online Learning
Public School Division is proud to offer staff and K-12 students
with the opportunity to learn online. Children in K-5 will have
opportunities to acquaint themselves with technology through web-based
lessons and activities. Children in grades 6-9 will complete individual
web-based activities and lessons but will focus on completing entire
modules of study using various forms of technology to access information,
complete assignments and achieve curricular objectives. Students
in our high schools will have the opportunity to plan a flexible
and balanced education by accessing lessons, activities, modules
and full courses online. Online professional development opportunities
and web-based resources are also accessible for SPSD staff members.
Online learning is one of the many ways the Saskatoon Public School
Division strengthens our learning community while focusing on student
learning and our people.
in our division are dedicated to integrating technology into regular
classroom instruction to ensure that our students are exposed to
a variety of technological experiences. We believe that is is important
for students to have the opportunity to understand how they learn
best so that they can make informed decisions about what types of
learning environment will prove most beneficial to their individual
Since our goal is to provide technology based learning opportunities
for students K-12, online learning may look a little different at
each grade level. Furthermore, online learning does not always happen
at a computer. For example, activities have been designed to encourage
interaction and group work with technology being used at some point
to either access assignments, research a topic, or produce a final
project. In addition, online learning doesn't always happen in isolation.
Group work and interaction are still an integral part of the learning
that takes place within online learning activities. In other words,
educationally sound objectives are met through the use of various
technologies and instructional strategies.
The Online Learning Centre also contains learning opportunities
for the employees of the Saskatoon Public School Division to ensure
that everyone has the opportunity to make connections for life long
The Learning Continuum.
