A pre­sen­ta­tion at a reg­u­lar Chi­nook School Di­vi­sion board meet­ing on May 13 high­lighted the ben­e­fits of course op­tions avail­able to stu­dents through the Chi­nook Cy­ber School. The pre­sen­ta­tion was made by Cy­ber School Prin­ci­pal Shelby Budd (above) and three stu­dents. The pre­sen­ta­tion for­mats il­lus­trated the in­ter­ac­tive use of tech­nol­ogy by Cy­ber School to con­nect with stu­dents and to as­sess learn­ing. Budd was joined at the meet­ing by Blaid Sned­den (pic­tured, left), a Grade 12 stu­dent at Swift Cur­rent Com­pre­hen­sive High School. Sned­den spoke about her ex­pe­ri­ence with on­line learn­ing while do­ing the crop pro­duc­tion course through Cy­ber School, and she pre­sented a video she cre­ated as part of the course re­quire­ment. She won a sil­ver medal at the Skills Canada com­pe­ti­tion in April with a project about ma­chin­ery and ve­hi­cle safety on the farm. Mol­lie Black from Con­sul talked about her in­for­ma­tion pro­cess­ing course and her dig­i­tal learn­ing ex­pe­ri­ence in a video pre­sen­ta­tion she recorded on Flip­grid. Sarah Coak­ley, a Grade 11 stu­dent from Maple Creek, joined the meet­ing live through Google Han­gouts to talk about her pref­er­ence for on­line learn­ing to do her com­puter science class, and she demon­strated a com­puter game that she de­signed.
