Q: How did Indro come to be featured on EDTV Lyn?
A: “We were approached by Monty from EDTV to talk about the success we're having with the Micro:bits Program; and from conversations we had with him and Dr Sandra Nissen we developed a script that not only explained Indro's Micro:bits story but also highlighted how much data and feedback we receive about the program. EDTV then asked that we discuss what that data and feedback enables us to do. And that is that it gives us the opportunity to look at the growth to be had in our school in the digital space".
Lyn added that through explaining Indooroopilly SHS's story, the producers of EDTV identified that the approach taken by our school to engage with feedback from students, parents and staff enables improved curriculum engagement for students.
Lyn went on to explain the school's focus on Digital Citizenship to us and why it is so important to our students.
“So, along with our focus on Digital Citizenship this episode tells how we have developed Indro's Digital Citizenship story, and how we've grown from the feedback we receive, both from students and staff. Staff communicate what they want to see for their students to aid them in increasing their digital literacy and we do our best to ensure those wants and needs are transferred to the curriculum to benefit our students". “Through a series of meetings with EDTV's Monty and Dr Nissen, we are able to convey how Indooroopilly values each person's diversity through open communication and quality learning and how this links to not only our Micro:bits Program, but also to our efforts in ensuring our students are good Digital Citizens.
Indooroopilly SHS is featured in Episode 19 of this EDTV series and features school leaders explaining data-informed practice to support the adjustment to teaching and learning in response to community feedback. You're able to watch the EDTV Episode by clicking this link: https://bit.ly/3yHIGnD
