OAPCE’s FIRST EVER Parent Crowdsourcing Idea Board

As we closed out this past school year, OAPCE was eager to gather the thoughts of parents from across the province to fulfill our mandate to be the voice of parents in Catholic Education. We invited parents from across the province to contribute to generating ideas which would be shared with the Ministry of the Education and School Boards across Ontario.

The intent was to crowdsource parent thoughts and ideas on what things should START, what things should STOP, and what things should CONTINUE to be done in publicly funded Catholic Education across the province. OAPCE utilized free software tool (ideaboardsz.com) to facilitate the data collection. As this was OAPCE’s first attempt at such an activity, the organization opted for a free service prior to exploring other fee based tools. To that end, there are some limitations around data analytics but overall the tool was extremely successful in achieving its 2 primary objectives. One, engage parents and two, gather parents thoughts and ideas on three key themes.These boards where open from June 23rd to July 16th, 2021.

SURVEY RESULTS:

Theme 1 - Mental Health

Thinking about children’s mental health. What should the ministry and school boards…START doing, STOP doing, CONTINUE doing?

Theme 2 - Student Achievement

Thinking about academic achievement. What should the ministry and school boards …START doing, STOP doing, CONTINUE doing?

Theme 3 - Virtual Learning

Thinking about technology and virtual learning. What should the ministry and school boards…START doing, STOP doing, CONTINUE doing?
