New superintendent poses challenge to #spsdme administrators: write an “elevator speech”–in 30 seconds or less, describes work that you will do during 2015-2016 to support the district action plan.
“We will grow the learning commons model at the elementary level with the development of a makerspace. Through project-based learning experiences, students will be involved in designing the physical space, defining the purpose of the space, and promoting a maker culture at Dyer. Students and staff will access the Dyer “fab lab” for Makers’ Club, Staff Genius Hour, and to support rich content projects.
Goals in each of the 4 action plan areas will be supported through this work :
- learning by providing a venue for less traditional, more messy development and application of knowledge through creation
- teaching by promoting instructional experiences that involve students in authentic, meaningful explorations and activities
- schools by fostering collaboration among students and staff across grade levels and schools
- community by building connections between learning and living “
