Course Summary 

In this course, students will display and develop various digital literacy skills and gain an understanding of digital citizenship, research and information literacy, and how to establish an online portfolio. Students are encouraged to bring their own laptop devices for this course.  

DL10 is a year-long, blended learning (both online and face-to-face) course offered through Coquitlam Open Learning (COL) that all SD43 grade 9 students are enrolled in. This class runs outside of the regular timetable, which means that we have scheduled FLEX tutorial class times, but students are also responsible for working on the course on their own time throughout the year. This is a credited grade 10 level course and students will be receiving a final percentage for this course. 

Teachers will provide online access to resources, assignments, and tasks through Teams and Edublogs. Students are expected to participate in scheduled tutorial sessions and communicate with their DL10 teacher throughout the course.

During FLEX tutorials, students will be provided with the support to complete assignments and learn corresponding digital skills. This will include, but is not limited to: 

  • Creating an online portfolio on the Edublog platform
    • Customizing and personalizing 
    • Uploading and embedding various documents and media 
    • Following FOIPPA regulations
