ROSLYN TEACHER JULIE MARCUS WINS TECHNOLOGY AWARD

MONTREAL, MARCH 9, 2015 – Julie Marcus, a teacher at Roslyn Elementary School in Westmount, was recently named one of three winners across Canada in the seventh annual MindShare Learning Digital Learning Video Challenge.

Ms. Marcus submitted a video in which she demonstrated how technology is incorporated into the day-to-day pedagogy at Roslyn. The video demonstrates students learning critical skills from basic computer programming to video and photo editing.

With a brand-new technology centre at the school, Ms. Marcus and her colleagues use these cutting edge tools to truly enhance their students’ computer literacy.

“By constructing their own media, students are able to deconstruct the media they are bombarded with and become more aware of media influences,” said Ms. Marcus “Winning this national contest solidifies that Roslyn students are media smart, learning invaluable skills for the 21st century.”
