Teaching approach“Mr. V.’s coming for a visit!” … word spreads quickly when students across the Regina Catholic School Board hear that Dean Vendramin is dropping by. Google-certified and always looking for fresh opportunities for students and teachers alike, Venramin worked as a technology consultant for the School Board where he made sure that students and teachers were benefiting from the programs that were available to them. He’s now back at Archbishop M.C. O’Neill High School, inspiring students with innovative and exciting projects.
- Mr. Vendramin introduced the Communication Production Technology course (teaching web and graphic design, audio, video and multimedia production) and is now facilitating the New Media Campus Articulation program, which gives students a post-secondary multimedia diploma.
- Mr. Vendramin is now working toward securing an articulation agreement between the Regina Catholic Schools and the Saskatchewan Institute of Applied Science and Technology, which would allow students to receive extra credits.
- Verdamin’s students all create e-portfolios recording achievements like multimedia contests and film festivals, production of live distance education classes and participation in CBC Student News Day.
