Year 1: Summary

This project aims to provide French teacher candidates with the necessary skills and resources to effectively create and share digital resources in alignment with the revised B.C. Curriculum and Digital Literacy Framework. The focus will be on the creation of a set of OER (open educational resources) that are accessible and relevant to teacher candidates in the Core French and French Immersion Teacher Education programs (elementary and secondary). Developing and sharing these resources will involve collaboration on all fronts (instructors, teacher candidates, faculty advisors and school districts) and will encourage an exchange of ideas and a sense of community. We will also work in collaboration with the BC Teacher’s Federation as we will be uploading exemplars and having students upload their own examples to the TeachBC Open Educational Repository.
