Technology and pedagogy are my passions. My dedication to Universal Design for Learning (UDL) drives my efforts to create accessible learning environments that accommodate diverse learning needs. I am deeply committed to integrating technology into educational curricula to improve learning outcomes, with a particular focus on the transformative potential of artificial intelligence (AI) to support teaching and learning while restoring the "JOY" in our profession. I strive to make educational technology a tool for all, ensuring it serves as a bridge rather than a barrier in the learning process.

Ms Christina Dafoe

Sturgeon Public School Division | 

  • Edtech Leaders

I love EdTech. I have been involved with educational technology since the beginning of my education. I currently work in Morinville, AB at Four Winds Public School. A couple years ago I went to my principal with the idea of having a STEAM Academy at our school. We had a Dance Academy and a Sports Academy but the idea of a STEAM Academy was something I was passionate about as another option for our students\. In 2019-2020 we had 25 students registered in grade 5 and 6. In 2021-2020 we have 24 students in grade 5, 24 students in grade 6, and 27 students in grade 7-9! I also work with my CO IT department, helping out where needed in my school. Look forward to continuing to learn, grow, and connect!
