Commitment by Choice

Commitment by Choice | IB Middle Years Program | Scoop.it

Lesher Middle School is a school of choice, as are all of the schools in the Poudre School District in Ft. Collins, CO. In 2004, it was a traditional junior high school with a declining enrollment that housed an application-based International Baccalaureate Middle Years Programme (IB MYP) that resulted in tracking students. Today, it is a thriving middle school at capacity enrollment with 700 students, 40% of whom qualify for support, who come from 27 elementary schools. Lesher’s transformation and very survival was built on the belief that to “break ranks,” every adult needed to commit to the success of every child. Doing so required a major overhaul to the school’s culture.

7 Ways to Deal With Digital Distractions in the Classroom

7 Ways to Deal With Digital Distractions in the Classroom | IB Middle Years Program | Scoop.it

"Some call today’s students “digital natives.” Others call them the “distracted generation.” Whichever term you prefer, it’s clear they’re both far more than labels: they capture the core conflict many of us involved in education — educators, parents, and even students — feel about the use of technology in the classroom."

Technology in education: if students aren't worried, why are teachers? | IB Middle Years Program | Scoop.it

I couldn't agree more. As teachers, our role must change to one that enables, guides, personalises and embraces digital technology as a fundamental part of student learning. The most dangerous thing we can do to our students is to keep doing what our teachers and professors did to us:
