It is available for grades 5-8 and is the perfect way for a student, family and teacher to see what is at the heart of SEED through an ADST Module with some of the extra support that makes SEED successful. The SEED Lite class uses tools such as Google Classroom as the LMS (learning management system) that allows for differentiation and tools such as Read&Write and Grammarly to be integrated into all of the students' work. Topics may include:
- Digital Citizenship
- Google Apps & Google Classroom - how to maximize your learning style
- Hour of Code
- Google Earth
- Brush Ninja and Google Slides
Mission of SEED
In Experiential Design, the goal is that all learning is planted deeply and given the opportunity to be rooted and grounded with solid comprehension. By fully experiencing learning through practical, personal and meaningful projects, students will develop critical thinking, executive functioning, communications skills and creativity. Learners will be filled up with the richest of opportunities to grow and blossom into who God has created them to be, and also be provided with meaningful interactions and experiences with the world around them as followers of our amazing, loving God.
May He grant you out of the riches of His glory, to be strengthened and spiritually energized with power through His Spirit in your inner self, [indwelling your innermost being and personality], 17 so that Christ may dwell in your hearts through your faith. And may you, having been [deeply] rooted and [securely] grounded in love, 18 be fully capable of comprehending with all the saints (God’s people) the width and length and height and depth of His love [fully experiencing that amazing, endless love]; 19 and [that you may come] to know [practically, through personal experience] the love of Christ which far surpasses [mere] knowledge [without experience], that you may be filled up [throughout your being] to all the fullness of God [so that you may have the richest experience of God’s presence in your lives, completely filled and flooded with God Himself]. - Ephesians 3:16-19 Amp.
