Accessing information and learning skills via technology will enhance learning for the students of the school, developing as 21st Century Learners. Students actively make choices about how to seek/search for information, as well as how to display/share what they are learning. Critical thinking, problem solving and cooperative group work are integral skills within the technology initiative.
In June 2015, Kozefò received a generous donation that allowed for the purchase of 20 Chromebooks, an LCD projector, a printer, and accessories for the school. The school was accepted to become a Google Apps for Education school. The donation also provided funding for a technology teacher for one year, as well as installation of a small wi-fi system.
Partnership: White Bear Lake Public Schools
The partnership between ANA Primary School and White Bear Lake Public Schools is intended to provide the opportunity to open minds and classrooms to other cultures. As students discover that education and people in far away places can look different, but at their cores, they are very similar. The long-term goal is to establish a regular meeting time between the two schools to develop an ongoing relationship of collaborative learning.
