Greetings, and thank you for your interest in Grade 7 Immersive Technology (IMT7)! Here is a 3 minute video that gives a quick overview of this 21st century learning methodology for 21st century learners, http://safeshare.tv/v/ss574df317a5a75.
IMT 7 covers the new Grade 7 Curricular Competencies for:
- Social Studies
- Applied Design, Skills and Technology.
IMT7 students will explore the ancient civilizations of Egypt and Rome as well as visit and study historical Biblical sites. In these virtual environments students interact with content wrapped in stories that challenge students to engage in critical thinking about issues that are authentic and relevant to them and their world.
Beyond curricular content delivery, the IMT program also creates real classes of students in which there is a strong sense of community. Parents are encouraged to work alongside their children, at times helping them complete additional supporting material and assisting them with their writing as well as discussing with them the implications of the exciting choices their assignments will ask them to make.
IMT uses a number of online programs that includes the well-established 3DU, Thinking Worlds, DimensionU and BrainPop. But we’re always on the lookout for new and exciting immersive technologies for students to learn with!
