What Learning Looks Like in RVS

This series of animated videos takes a fun look What Learning Looks Like in Rocky View Schools through the learning experiences in which students, teachers & leaders engage every year.


These locally-produced “RockyDocs” are short films that share some of the learning stories in Rocky View Schools. Explore these films for themes of student engagement and learning design. Share them at staff meetings, with students and on social media!

Ways of Knowing

Learning stories about Connection, Community, Identity and Learning with the Land can be found in the Indigenous Perspectives playlist on the RVS Channel, including Learning with the Land, the story behind the new RVS Land Acknowledgement.

The Learning Designers Interviews

Rocky View Schools is full of Innovators who design engaging learning. As we navigated teaching and learning during #RVSedLearningFromHome, we wanted to connect with some of the teachers who are trailblazing a path forward for their students and schools. As we develop new and creative ways to support our learners, many of us discovered new tools and practices that we will likely keep well into the future. Enjoy this engaging series of interviews with RVS teachers captured on Zoom during the school closures in spring 2020. Learn more about all the projects in our Archives.
