Kim is the Helping Teacher of Transformative Learning for School District 5 in the Elk Valley. Kim also works with classes/schools in multiple towns to help increase student engagement by experimenting with new technologies and projects.
In 2018, the school district invested in creating two Design Labs – one in Cranbrook and one in Fernie. Teachers have the opportunity to book sessions with either Ryan or Kim for a day in the lab. Students experiment with technologies such as micro:bits, Lego WeDo, augmented reality, GPS units, 360 degree cameras, and/or 3D printing. In 2019, the labs will be equipped with a small virtual reality area.
