The Digital Student

STUDENT_DIGITAL.jpg

A digital student is a student that instead of having a classroom to learn about their chosen subject, they have a computer or laptop. It basically means you use technology more than you will use a paper and pen. Their course is online and the teacher will send e-mails of their assignments instead of hand outs.

An example of a digital student is, in college many teachers video tape their lessons and then upload them on the school website. Any student can stay home and still be apart of the class.

When in P.O.P class, you are somewhat of a digital student because you use the Portal . It is a program that runs by the English Montreal School Board. You will use it too save work, hand in and receive assignments and also, you can communicate with your peers. EPEARL is another program that you could use to hand in your assignments and also receive your grades. P.O.P class ru ns smoother when you’re on the computer
