“We need to take classroom learning beyond a one-size-fits-all model and bring it into the 21st Century.” ~ Secretary of Education Arne Duncan
The FWSU Board of Directors recently approved a new Action Plan for 2012-2015. This document also is considered our VT Department of Education required Technology Plan as well. Here are some of the highlights:
Student-Centered Learning: FWSU students will engage in personalized learning involving collaborative inquiry, problem solving and creative learning opportunities
Leadership in a Student-Centered Learning Environment: FWSU will foster the development of teacher and student leaders who provide innovative opportunities for local and global student-centered learning.
Flexible Learning Environments: FWSU will maximize flexible learning environments by redefining the school day, promoting learning experiences that extend beyond the school classroom, and fostering creativity, innovation, and differentiated learning opportunities for all.
Engaged Community Partners: FWSU staff and students will collaborate, innovate, create and conceptualize ideas and learning with local, regional, state, and global partners to make a difference in their community, state, and world.
