The continued safety, well-being, and success of our students, teachers, staff, and community has always been our top priority as we navigate the complex and evolving coronavirus crisis. To this end, we are updating our reopening plan to begin the school year in a fully online-learning model for all students which will continue through the last week of September. All students in grades 1-12 will begin on August 18, kindergarten students will begin on August 20.
La seguridad continúa, el bienestar, y el éxito de nuestros estudiantes, maestros, empleados, y la comunidad siempre ha sido nuestra prioridad más importante a manera que enfrentamos la compleja y evolucionante crisis del coronavirus. Con este fin, estamos actualizando nuestro plan de reapertura para comenzar este año escolar en un modelo de instrucción completamente en línea para estudiantes hasta finales de septiembre. Hemos actualizado el calendario para que todos los estudiantes en los grados 1-12 comiencen el 18 de agosto, los estudiantes de jardin de infantes comenzarán el 20 de agosto.
Today was an incredible day of creating, innovating, teamwork, communicating, and more creating. We began by presenting our prototypes from yesterday. We gave feedback with the sentence frame “I like… I wish… What if…” During our feedback phase, we realized that if we combined two of the prototypes, both would be improved immensely.The quality of feedback was quite impressive.
Next, we had a FaceTime presentation/interview session with Thom Ingram and his high school engineering students, from the Innovation Center. At first we had some COMMUNICATION issues, but then, we resolved the tech problems and had a great learning experience. Mr. Ingram and his students provided us with great insight on communication and all that it entails.
We then jumped into the next design challenge: Design a way to get information to people with limited access to technology. We began by brainstorming who our users would be. After looking at some statistics, we realized that people in poverty, people in poverty ridden countries, and the elderly were the least “connected” people in the world. Next, we discussed how improved communication could benefit these people. We did some research and then began to ideate, then prototype. Three of our innovations are designed to help people in third world countries, and one is designed to help elderly people.
