Community Partnerships: Lake Forest/Lake Bluff

Our department has a long history of partnerships with the Lake Forest and Lake Bluff school districts.

K-16 Initiative with Lake Forest and Lake Bluff School Districts

The K-16 committee is composed of representatives from Lake Forest School District 67, Lake Bluff School District 65, Lake Forest High School District 115 and Lake Forest College. The committee began meeting during the spring of 2005 and continues to seek ways to tap into community resources and collaborate for the purpose of improving learning for our students and improving staff development/instruction across our communities.

 

Lake Forest College Teacher Candidate Placements

Dr. Rachel Ragland and District 67 & 115 Assistant Superintendent Dr. Lori Wilcox continue to discuss student teacher placements.  The goal is to increase LFHS teacher confidence in the preparedness of LFC student teachers. 

 

Burnham Project

Lake Forest College included teachers and students at LFHS in the Virtual Burnham project.  LFC Professor Davis Schneiderman received a grant to transform the flat images and maps of the Plan of Chicago into 3-D models that overlay modern-day Chicago using Google Earth. LFHS students were invited to take photographs of today’s Chicago and several of the photographers were honored for their excellent work.  One student’s work was featured on a photography book cover.  Although the Virtual Burnham Project has not received additional grant money, the website is available at http://vbi.lakeforest.edu/
   

Integration of Web 2.0 Applications

 DPM Technology Coach Laura Montgomery conducted an instructional technology session for an LFC Elementary Methods Class this year.  In the class, Laura gave the teacher candidates an overview of integrating technology in instruction. Following her session, LFC students observed the use of technology in various classrooms.

Next Steps:
    Lake Forest College would like to expand observations of authentic uses of technology to the elementary school classrooms.
