Southwest Parke Community School Corp. has received an Imagining and Creating eLearning grant for the 2013-2014 school year through the Indiana Department of Education.
SWP joins 15 other recipients for excellence in three strategic areas of focus: digital content, customized learning and flexible scheduling.
The SWP leadership team, consisted of Rachel Porter, Jill Wiram, Kyle Kersey and Abby Cleghorn gave a presentation to the Office of eLearning on March 21.
The team also met with other leadership teams in the consortium on April 17, to begin curating a state-wide database of model digital content tied to education standards. The consortium determined that the database will consist of free, high-quality tools that have been used by actual teachers in their classrooms. SWP teachers will have the opportunity to contribute to the database the work they are already doing in the corporation’s transition from print to digital media.
