We believe that lifelong learning is a skill we need to give students. Our focus on blended learning teaches students about unlimited access to learning opportunities that are available to them on via the internet. Coding is the universal language of the 21st Century so we begin providing this learning experience to our students for thirty minutes a week in Kindergarten, we have a 1:1 iPad program and much more! In Belle Plaine Public Schools we have been examining practices and looking for areas we can improve our practice to ensure we are preparing our students for the world they will be entering. We want to ensure students are developing the skills and knowledge necessary to responsibly navigate this emerging modern world. Today's world will require students to have a different set of skills than what was required a decade ago.
