Lake Shore CSD participated in a Belouga x What If...?360 curosity based workshop in October 2017, with a focus on sparking creativity among students through global education. What If...?360, is a curosity learning process that turns ideas into actions through a collaboration, starting with an individuals curiosities and leading to collaboratively designed action plans. Belouga is a global web based platform used by teachers in 70+ countries to have their classrooms connected and collaborating with peers around the world.
The DNA of Belouga surrounds curiosity by providing students and teachers the ability to learn about the world, with the world. Thus, the What If...?360 method is a key component of the educational experience on Belouga.
The Lake Shore CSD workshop took place over two days, with a total of 60 students and 16 educators (teachers, principals, super intendents and tech integration specialists) from the district participating. Both students and teachers were introduced to the What If...?360 approach and then able to excerise these skills in relation to global education and collaboration through Belouga.
