Kudos to CPS Information Technology and Curriculum Staff.
On Thursday, November 12, 2015, the new CPS Driving Digital Learning Tech Truck made its first school visit at Hughes STEM High School. Equipped with laptops and tablets, the latest learning software, a 3-D printer, projectors, eBeam and an Aquos Board, the truck will travel from school to school and provide opportunities for teachers to experiment with new technology and software, or to brush up on applications they might find a little challenging.
The Cincinnati Public Schools’ My Tomorrow initiative was created to prepare all students for success in the real world, including a strong emphasis on technology proficiency for students. To maximize technology’s power as a learning tool, CPS is developing innovative ways in which teachers can explore cutting-edge technology and software.
KUDOS to Hughes STEM High School Principal Kathy Wright for her participation at a White House Summit to present research on Next Generation Learning.
On Nov. 10, 2015, Ms. Wright presented research during the daylong summit on the impact of a National Science Foundation grant. The grant was designed to increase Hughes students’ interest in STEM (Science, Technology, Engineering, Math) concepts by promoting use of technology and involving real-world partners in project-based learning.
The summit, which included senior officials in President Obama’s administration, featured students, educators, philanthropists and entrepreneurs who are reinventing the high school experience to expand students’ access to innovative science, technology, engineering and math teaching and learning. On Nov. 9, 2015, Ms. Wright also presented the research at a forum in Washington, D.C., supported by the National Science Foundation: Next Generation STEM Learning for All.
