Ontario Extend is a capacity building initiative that is grounded in the belief that the impact of learning should be the primary motivator for creating technology-enabled and online learning experiences. It aims to empower educators to explore a range of emerging technologies and pedagogical practices for effective online and technology-enabled teaching and learning.
It explores the skills, knowledge, and attributes required to extend and transform our teaching and learning practices and to enrich our professional development.
The intent of these resources is to provide the basis for more deliberate course design and digital pedagogical practice.
The framework for these resources is grounded in the model for the Anatomy of 21st Century Educators as described by Simon Bates (2014) and is supported by six modules: Teacher for Learning, Technologist, Curator, Collaborator, Experimenter and Scholar and a Domain of One’s Own project.
