This is a profile video of one of our schools. One of the questions were leaning towards is what makes your school different. At Digital Promise, we are committed to help our schools bridge the learning gaps that continue to affect many of our classrooms. VIDA Middle School (Vista Innovation and Design Academy) is redesigning learning by using a "let's figure it out" approach. Learning here is a rich mixed media experience (as seen in the video) where doing learning is more valuable than have learning done to them. It's such a hands on experience. With the support from Verizon's 4G connection, students can extend this type of learning into their homes.
VIDA Middle School is A great example on how they have rethought the learning experience for the students and teachers at their school and how connected resources like their iPads are helping the necessary connections to fine personal successes for all of their students. We enjoyed documenting and storytelling how this middle school in Vista California is bridging the learning by redesigning the thinking and learning for the students, teachers, families, and community.
