WE HAVE REACHED OUR GOAL!!!!!


THANK YOU! THANK YOU! 
 

I am so impressed with and thankful for our school community! Thank you to Students, Parents, Teachers, Staff, Administration, Friends and Family of Euclid!

21st Century Media Center Renovation 


The new media center plans will include multi-use table and lounge configurations, monitors to hook the Chromebooks to for group and individual work. Below are links to a 2D and a 3D pdf draft of the project. The plan is to raise the funds to complete this project quickly. The magazine sale will be held in September with the hope to start and complete the renovation in the fall of 2016!!
 

WHY Do We Need a 21st Century Media Center?!

The New Space will allow teachers to utilize the Media Center to enhance this generation’s learning style and skills. Teachers can use this space to encourage group collaboration. Students are able to work together to problem solve, be creative, communicate and think critically with on another.

The Consensus of Educators and Experts in the field believe that students need transparency-level skills in these areas*:
 

· Problem Solving- Students need the ability to solve complex problems in real time.
· Creativity- Students need to be able to think and work creatively in both digital and non-digital environments to develop unique and useful solutions.
· Analytic Thinking- Students need the ability to think analytically, which includes proficiency with comparing, contrasting, evaluating, synthesizing, and applying without instruction or supervision.
· Collaboration-  Students must possess the ability to collaborate seamlessly in both physical and virtual spaces, with real and virtual partners globally.
· Communication- Students must be able to communicate not just with text or speech, but in multiple multimedia formats. They must be able to communicate visually through video and imagery as effectively as they do with text and speech.
