CBMS- MGI Mission Statement

Focus Statement for our work at the MGI, and in year #1, with the Tarrant Institute for Innovative Education: In year #1 of our partnership with the Tarrant Institute for Innovative Education, CBMS staff will analyze and re-design the CBMS learning environment, with the goal of supporting an increase in personalized learning and meaningful pursuits for our students. We will be aiming to create a learning environment which allows our students to engage in learning that incorporates interests, questions and concerns about issues of personal and social significance in a democratic society. This work will begin in the Middle Grades Institute in June, where we will run a jigsaw approach towards exploring this lofty goal. Small groups will focus on:
*The utilization of time- how can the CBMS daily schedule change to better allow us to meet this goal?
*The roll-out of Personal Learning Plans @ CBMS- what needs to happen for these plans to quickly become a cornerstone of personalization?
*1:1 environment @ CBMS- what can this look like, and how do we get there?
Student Empowerment and Student Voice- how can these be ramped up @ CBMS?

The March to 1:1 @ CBMS

What we want to achieve at the MGI:

  • Draft an action plan to get to full 1:1 in 16/17 school year, including steps to get us closer to 1:1 in 15/16.
    • Utilize and seek out expertise of other TIIE schools here at the MGI who are in 1:1
  • Tech Coordinator hiring- peruse applications to date
  • Review already created notes on 1:1 implementation

  3. 1:1 take home? We are thinking not in the beginning for everyone, on an as needed basis if there is no technology at home.
