Welcome to the start of a new calendar year. While the school year is at its midway point there are many new and innovative ideas taking shape at Highland Tech and in education in general. Pushing the envelope to bring optimal learning for students and adults, we are exploring the implementation of a “digital” classroom in our Social Environments – Level 1. We continuely strive to discover new and powerful ways to best harness the vast array of technologies to build a strong foundation of 21st century skills for students.
A shift is underway to move from an emphasis on content to an emphasis on “thinking skills.” Skills such as problem solving, creative thinking, communication, and collaboration. This blog will continue to explore and chronicle our learning and innovation.
