Student Voices for Change
Miller, Shannon McClintock
Learning & Leading with Technology, v38 n8 p20-23 Jun-Jul 2011
In the fall of 2009, Van Meter Community School in Iowa adopted a one-to-one laptop initiative in grades 6-12 and a strong technology focus throughout the district. Since that time, an atmosphere of respect, creativity, collaboration, and connection as well as independent thinking and learning has prevailed at the school. Today, Van Meter has become a source of inspiration for educational transformation. It encourages students to speak to lawmakers, education leaders, and policy makers about the role technology has played in the transformation of their school. The author shares the story of how the Van Meter students became an inspiration and have encouraged others to make changes at their schools around the world. (Contains 10 resources.)
