It has been our intention to return to some form of in-person learning as soon as it was determined by our health departments that it is both safer and feasible to do so. On September 21, during our virtual town hall with county health department officials, we reviewed the current coronavirus data for our community. To this end, our county health agency partners have made the recommendation that it is now appropriate for us to return to a hybrid learning model. Click here to watch the virtual town hall discussion about the data guiding our decisions and current levels in our community. Beginning Monday, October 5, we will be implementing a hybrid in-person learning schedule for all students who are not currently enrolled in the LaunchED program. LaunchED student’s schedules will not be impacted by this change.
Cómo usted sabe, nuestra intención ha sido volver a alguna forma de aprendizaje en persona tan pronto cómo nuestros departamentos de salud determinen que es más seguro y factible hacerlo. Anoche, durante nuestra junta virtual con los funcionarios del departamento de salud del condado, revisamos los datos actuales del coronavirus para nuestra comunidad. Con esto, nuestros asociados de las agencias de salud pública del condado han recomendado que ahora es apropiado que regresemos a un modelo de aprendizaje híbrido. Haga clic aquí para ver la discusión de la junta virtual sobre los datos que guían nuestras decisiones y los niveles actuales en nuestra comunidad. Comenzando el lunes 5 de octubre, estaremos implementando un programa de aprendizaje híbrido en persona para todos los estudiantes que no estén inscritos actualmente en el programa LaunchED. Los horarios de estudiantes LaunchED no serán impactados por este cambio.
Students learn collaboration, communication and critical thinking skills at Indian Peaks. They were able to apply their skills in two activities. The first ctivity was building with a something giant legos in a team. They brainstormed what to build and how to start. Next, students gathered some giant legos and they began to create. During the building stage a varierty of structures were designed- a bed, a castle a chair and a giant triangle.
The second acticity students were involved in was creating a maze to drive sphero through. Students gathered in teams again and ideated their maze. As a team, they built a maze for partners to drive through. Students then worked together to learn how to drive the sphero through the maze they designed. Students were learning how to navigate a new tool and how to communicate directions. Between these activites, students applied their skills and became master builders and designers.
