Transforming Our Community of Learners

Sometimes I have to pinch myself as it is hard to believe that just a year ago I was in Scotland visiting Cedars School of Excellence to observe their 1:1 initiative. In just a short period of time FHS went from researching iPads in education to rolling out 400 iPads to teachers and students. This year has been quite the learning journey! We have learned so much and seen so many transformative things happening that we wanted to share what we are doing with as many people as possible. month from today we will be hosting our first iPad Summit! It is a two day event showcasing our 1:1 technology initiative. Day one will will include visits in active 1:1 classrooms to see first hand how our students have transformed into a community of learners. Day two kicks off with a keynote by Fraser Speirs. He will be speaking about next-generation technology, teaching practice and curriculum. The remainder of the day will be filled with workshops and discussion focusing on curriculum, creativity, and cultural changes in a 1:1 environment. It truly is an exciting time to be a FHS Husky!
