Philosophy is all about searching for truth and wisdom and at PSD, we feel this is a perfect vehicle for developing critical thinking and enabling our SWLSB students to think increasingly logically.

How we can help

In addition to the general offer of service, we can offer various supports to this subject including helping you:

  • organize Socratic seminars
  • integrate logic and paradoxes throughout the curriculum
  • create evaluations of philosophical thinking skills
  • understand the Philosophy Progressions of Learning and use this understanding to help you map out your teaching
  • with any PDIG or other projects in your school
  • set up a lunchtime Phrontisterion
  • wrestle with the notion of life’s futility and a random purposeless universe

Electronic Assessment

The purpose of this collaborative PDIG project is to present an electronic alternative to the traditional paper and pencil assessment. Written exams will be assessed using Google Forms. We will provide the step by step breakdown of how to assess your students in Google Forms.

The benefits of switching to this electronic method is multi-faceted. Primarily, this process is moving into the 21st century where students are becoming more proficient with technology and they are required to use it in their daily classroom life. This process can be tailored to suit the needs of any Physical Education program either in an Elementary or Secondary setting. Teachers can now provide their students with instantaneous feedback once they have set up their various forms. The multiple choice or True or False exams can be autograded using Flubaroo thus becoming an extremely efficient time saving practice. Teachers will no longer have to print out paper copies of their exams and transport them home to correct thus becoming environmentally friendly.

Teachers with several groups of 30 or more students can email their students results as soon as the exam is completed.
