13 13 Vision for a Windham High School 21 st Century Learner Multilingual Multi/Cross-Culturally Competent Critically Information Literate Technologically Fluent Academic Lifelong Learner Economically Engaged Artistically Expressive Democratic Citizen Multilingual Multi/Cross-Culturally Competent Critically Information Literate Technologically Fluent Academic Lifelong Learner Economically Engaged Artistically Expressive Democratic Citizen

14 14 What do we need to create this vision? Connectivity-Students need 24/7 technology access. Changing the way we teach-The 21 st century classroom is about active engagement. Classrooms are student-centered rather than teacher-centered and focus on real world applications and problem solving. Creativity-Eliminate the barriers! The 21 st century classroom can be at home, on a bus, or in the community. Curriculum-Academic content must be rigorous, relevant, and student centered.

18 18 Has One-to-One been successful? What does the research say? Students in one-to-one environments show greater independence and self-directed learning. They are more engaged and motivated, with significant improvements in attendance and have fewer discipline problems.
