The Van Meter way is 1:1 laptop computers for all students. Schools leaders say this has opened up a new way of learning for students in the school.
We featured Van Meter and Sigourney in this piece.
John Carver is the superintendent and was on our discussion with Judy Jeffrey, the director of the Iowa Department of Education. Our topic that night was innovations in Iowa schools.
On a small world note, Mr. Carver used to teach at Johnston High School. One of his student teachers was Brian Tate, who was on our May 20th Iowa Journal discussing childhood obesity. Here’s the link to that show which also features the PE4Life program in Grundy Center. Here’s the link to the blog post about the show.
