SSLA needs your input!
As a valued member of SSLA, we need your voice to direct the Association's upcoming professional development opportunity. SSLA envisions the provision of a professional learning opportunity in which participants earn self-chosen digital badges through learning about digital tools and skills, and then applying the learnings purposefully to instructional practices. Digital badges offer participants the opportunity to pave their personal learning pathways and leverage the potential for mastering digital age skills embodied in the ISTE Standards and Saskatchewan's Technology in Education.
The survey results will determine which digital skills and technologies the professional development opportunity should be the focus. Please add your voice by completing the short survey. An estimated time of five minutes is required to complete the survey.
To complete the survey online, please click on Digital Skills Survey or the URL (
The survey is now open and will close April 25, 2014. Answers are confidential. Responses will not be individually reported, but rather compiled in a summary format and stripped of identifying information.
Thank you in advance for your participation in this important project. If you have any questions about the survey, please contact the Saskatchewan School Library Association at [email protected].
More information regarding the professional development opportunity will be presented at the SSLA Conference on April 11th.
