Inside Your Schools - Technology

The next two chapters in Lakota’s new eight-part video series, “Inside Your Schools,” are now available. Please take a moment to learn more about two more priorities guiding our work at Lakota: The Power of Technology & Data and Embracing a Diverse Community.

This week, we discuss how technology has literally transformed Lakota’s approach to personalized education. Beyond just updating our infrastructure, staff have grown to embrace new ways of using that technology to enhance student learning.

We are focused on helping students use these tools to problem solve as they will one day in the workforce. It’s also proved a great tool for assessing student growth and helping tailor instruction to meet each individual student’s needs.  

The fifth video in the series celebrates a demographic trend at Lakota defined by steady changes in the cultural, racial, socioeconomic and cognitive make-up of our students and families. As the needs widen, Lakota is focused on better understanding that diversity and partnering with students and their families for the best possible outcomes. Much of this work is wrapped up in a new staff training program called “Champions for Change.” 

Each part in this new series focuses on different priorities shaping the educational experience we strive to create for every single Lakota student.The complete series will be available at www.lakotaonline.com/insideyourschools.
