powerEd Up!

powerEd Up! will support a three year plan created by teachers, school administrators and WFEE. The plan brings together the vision of the infrastructure, the equipment, professional development and the home school connection. The plan isn't just about funding devices or making it easier for teachers to access the internet. It is about giving all Winchester students the same tools to allow teachers to make students the primary architects of their own learning.

Here is a detailed look at the plan as presented to the School Committee

Winchester is at a transformational crossroad. At some of our schools and in some classrooms, students and their teachers are approaching each lesson in a new way. They are collaborating, accessing resources on line and using a variety of devices that make teaching an learning more effective.

Yet at other schools access to the internet is spotty, slow and unreliable. Students and teachers struggle with old computers or an inadequate number of devices for the classroom. The Board of Trustees of WFEE Believes the community can help change that picture.

WFEE President Sue Kim agrees, noting, "This plan isn't just about funding devices or making it easier for teachers to access the internet. It is about giving everyone, in all of our schools, the same tools that will teachers to make students the primary architects of their own learning."
