Technology Integration at Island View School

31 Mar

The Intelligent Community Forum is a think tank that studies the economic and social development of  the 21st Century community.  School District 8 and Island View School hosted ICF C0-founder Louis Zacharilla and members of the Saint John contingent today at IVS.  Louis told reporter April Cunningham of the TJ  that “Saint John’s reliance on innovation will create a culture of knowledge that lasts long term, which is why it was chosen as one of this year’s top seven most intelligent communities.”

Our tour this morning began with a brilliant video presentation showcasing the innovation and technology integration  at IVS.  The video was produced by one of my District 8 Technology Mentors,  Phil Sweezey in conjunction with IVS students.  We followed this up with a brief Prezi outlining examples of District Innovation and partnerships.  The highlight of the tour included classroom visits where Louis interacted with students in classrooms demonstrating student blogging, skyping, and a computer skills boot camp.
