Chapter 3 - Activities

Learning and learning environments are evolving. The classroom is moving beyond a physical space to include learning networks enabled by technologies that aim to broaden opportunities and empower learners to personalize for their needs and learning style. These emergent trusted environments should advance learning initiatives and foster innovation without sacrificing the safety of the learner. To achieve this, a network of stakeholders at all levels (e.g. learners, parents, businesses, teachers and nonprofits) must work in collaboration to address potential issues of trust, safety, privacy, literacy and equity of access. It will involve creating policies, developing tools and fostering practices that align with the community’s definition of trust.

The remainder of this guide features four worksheets aimed at learners, parents/caregivers, in-school and out-of-school providers, or developers interested in supporting a trusted environment. The worksheets are best used to explore what trust means to you, evaluate the current level of trust in your learning environment, and uncover specific next steps.

What’s in it for you?
The following four activities highlight why you should care about trust if you are a learners, parent/caregiver, in-school or out-of-school provider, or a developer. The worksheets can be used:

  • For understanding what trust means to YOU
  • As a guide for evaluating the current level of trust in your learning environment
  • To uncover specific actions you might take to develop a trusted learning environment.

We encourage you to work through these Activity sheets on your own, or with a group, and secure a trusted learning environment for you and your community. The guide is a form-enabled PDF. This means that you can enter your responses directly into the PDF document. Please remember to save your responses each time you use the fill.
