Join us on a journey to change what it means to be part of a neighbourhood, to be part of a community. But that's only part of what we are offering, with an emphasis on technology literacy and science, we want to prepare you for what it means to be a digital citizen so you can navigate the online world safely.
On the Community Hub each of the 10 areas that make up the West Zone has a page dedicated to each community. Our aim is to connect you with your Community Associations, School Councils, Non-Profits, Businesses, and Attractions.
We offer links to important City of Regina resources, community programs, and local supports.
Tired of all the noise going on with other large scale Social Media platforms? Our Community and TechLit Hub has a dedicated internal private social media platform for members of the community
Each community page has links to different social media channels, groups, pages, or subreddits that are designed around the different parts of the community.
Our Community Hub fosters and supports local community groups, non-profits, and neighbourhood volunteers. If you are part of an organization and you think the West Zone Board or our communication network can help, just get in touch!
We will always be stronger together than working apart. Let's work together to build a strong foundation of support for our communities!
Computer Basics takes you through the core components that make up a device and the foundational principles of how each piece of hardware and software work together to make computers work as we know them today.
Knowing how to use something and how something works are two completely different things. We want to set you up for success not only with todays technology, but the technology that is built on the platforms of tomorrow.
In this learning path we explore the connection between chemistry and cooking with over 15 science experiments you can do right in your kitchen with ingredients that can be found in most households.
This is the perfect all ages activity for an afternoon with the kids, check back often because we are adding new experiments all the time!
Are you or your child interested in learning more about computer code and programming? Our Learn Code learning path sets you up with some resources to start learning the foundations through Microsoft MakeCode and Code.org.
There has never been an easier time to learn how programming works, especially in todays no-code low-code world. Your West Zone login works for these coding education resources with more learning opportunities being made available as we find them.
In this section of our technology literacy hub we cover those indicators so that you have the foundational knowledge to navigate the online world safely.
One of your worst enemies is always going to be ourselves, so when it comes to online safety the best protection is asking questions, either to yourself or the online actor you are interacting with.
Windows 10 has officially been released to the public for over five years now with most users and businesses moving fully over from Windows 7/8/8.1, over the last few years as older versions of Windows have dropped off their support cycle with Microsoft.
If you are still using Windows 7 and older you NEED to move away from these deprecated operating systems as they are no longer getting support from Microsoft except for providing support and patches for dangerous zero-day bugs.
A digital citizen is a person using information technology (IT) in order to engage in society, politics, and government. Digital Citizenship can be defined as those who use the internet regularly and effectively, but they do so with a comprehensive understanding of the appropriate and responsible behavior needed when using technology.
A large part in being a responsible digital citizen encompasses digital literacy, etiquette, online safety, and an acknowledgement of private versus public information.
