Transforming a "Traditional" Middle School Into a "Tech Academy"

A talk by Derek Fialkiewicz
Principal, Lied STEM Academy

Over the past five years, we have transformed "traditional" Lied Middle School into the cutting edge technology Lied STEM Academy including one-to-one chromebooks, TVs in all classrooms, chromecasts, Z-space stations, etc... In this session, learn how we transitioned from teacher-centered, static, traditional classrooms to student-centered, dynamic, technology hubs. Discover how we adapted our curriculum, teaching, and learning styles to incorporate our technology throughout the school including project-, inquiry-, problem-based learning with student-centered alternative assessments and proficiency-based grading. Lied STEM Academy is now the most sought after magnet school in CCSD.
