MD's Science Program wins National Innovation Award

posted Apr 29, 2019, 7:54 AM by Cindy Craik

Teachers at Milton District High School have been recognized with a national award for their
innovative delivery of environmental sustainability curriculum in the school’s ​‘I-Think about
Science’ program​. Presented by the EdCan Network, the 2019 ​Ken Spencer Award​ for Innovation
in Teaching and Learning showcases the work of teachers who create relevant learning
experiences for students while solving complex societal issues.

At Milton District HS, teachers applied an Integrative Thinking method to guide classroom
conversations and projects. In this innovative problem solving-approach, students help tackle complex environmental sustainability issues such as access to clean water, invasive species, maintaining biodiversity, and beautifying school space. Students share their learning through “open space” exhibitions to expose more youth to this problem-solving approach. This ​demo classroom for 21st century learning encourages collaboration and creative thinking.

To develop the Milton District HS program, five teachers worked in partnership with the University of Toronto’s Rotman School of Management’s​ ​I-Think​ initiative. Together with the Halton District School Board’s​ ​“Shift”​ ​Innovation Coaches and Program Leaders for Science and Mathematics, this innovative learning approach was introduced to the school’s science class. The “Shift” aligns with the Board’s ​Multi-Year Plan​ to provide innovative and creative opportunities for students.
