Students and teachers at Bradford District High School participate in study set to enhance learning October 12, 2017 Category: NewsBack to News Page

​Grade 9 and 10 students at Bradford District High School (BDHS) have the opportunity to use and experience new equipment in their classrooms thanks to the Teacher Learning and Leadership Program (TLLP). The program, funded by the Ministry of Education, is an annual project-based professional learning opportunity for experienced classroom teachers.

Amy James, Special Education Department Chair from BDHS, submitted a proposal for the use of wobble stools and sound field amplification systems in 12 classrooms at the school, with the goal to enhance teaching and learning.

“Wobble stools are ergonomic and allow flexibility and a range of movement, which is ideal for student learning,” says James. “In addition, using a sound field amplification system in a classroom will ensure that students will be able to hear the teacher clearly at any location in the room.”

At the end of December, the students will fill out a survey based on how the equipment enhanced their learning, and a video will be produced that will be shared at upcoming teaching conferences.
