Biography

Johnathan Jones and Vivian Carter have collaborated and determined their focus will be the redesign of the STLP student technology work space. Although it is technically a storage/work area for the district technology equipment, it is also the meeting place of the high school STLP (Student Technology Leadership Program) students. To say that it is less than a creative learning space would be an understatement, yet some of the most creative and innovative ideas have spring from this less than inviting area. How might we improve the learning space and create a soothing, welcoming, flexible environment that encourages and celebrates student innovation and leadership? this is our challenge. Student voice is paramount in creating this new, comfortable, innovative, learning space. Therefore, students will be responsible for researching, planning and designing their “space” while Jon and Vivian will facilitate and promote the four C’s…collaboration, communication, critical thinking and creativity in the student “redesign”.

Johnathan left his position, so Vivian is presenting their project results.
