Target 1 – Student-Centered Learning: FWSU students will engage in personalize learning involving collaborative inquiry, problem solving and creative learning opportunities.
Action Step – Highlight, create and model innovative learning opportunities that promote collaborative inquiry, problem solving and creativity for students and staff.
A learning organization is one that:
- seeks to develop its own future
- believes that learning is an ongoing and creative process, and may be informal
- learning experiences must be shared broadly
- develops, adapts, and transforms itself in response to needs, both externally and within the group
- allows individuals to personally and collectively focus their energies on what they really care about
FWSU seeks to be such an organization. There is no better example than when our organization shares its learning not only within FWSU, but also with others in the broader field.
Each year VITA-Learn, the state’s leading educational technology association, offers three days of educational technology professional development opportunities for Vermont educators. This is the premier conference of its type in Vermont. FWSU is pleased to announce that 5 of our educational professionals have been selected to present and share their knowledge at this years’ conference.
This week in our blog we will feature the following teachers, administrators, and staff who will be presenting from FWSU:
- Lucie deLaBruere & Dayle Payne: Creativity and Innovation iPad Playground
- Jean Campbell, Sylvia Gagne, Melissa Hayden-Raley, and Lucie deLaBruere: Demos and Discussions for the Technicians around Supporting Emerging Technologies
- Jensen Welch: “Student Digital Procedures”
- Dayle Payne: “Get Your Game On”
- Michael Clark / Thomas Walsh: “Do you think Twitter is just for the stars? Developing a Digital Professional Learning Network Using Social Media.”
We are incredibly proud that so many of our own teachers, administrators, and staff were chosen to participate!
