Tell me and I’ll forget; show me and I may remember; involve me and I’ll understand.
The “Planner” is an academic tradition at Eastview which is imbedded in our 9th Grade Teams. Rather than simply a notebook to jot down pages to be read or assignments to complete, the planner is a tool to promote deep academic engagement. This analog learning support tool is used to create quality academic habits by providing visual opportunities for students, teachers, counselors and parents to easily review daily target learnings, develop a plan to complete homework that supports learning, as well as having school resources neatly included in a single publication. The “Planner” in document form, provides daily opportunities to collaboratively engage in visibly learning the power of thoughtful planning and goal setting, with the support and engagement of our students most valued mentors.
IS THERE’S AN APP FOR THAT?
Yes, a digital tool (phone, laptop, tablet, PDA) is a quality 21st century option which many of us use thoroughly to plan and organize our lives; and we encourage all students to develop such digital competencies. At Eastview we will have a fully wireless infrastructure that allows ALL students to access our network and the Internet from their personal laptop, tablet, phone or iPad. We are working with technology vendors to merge their planning and assignment management App Tools with our school content (knowledge management) to create a more effective digital option – with availability next school year.
