Growing up Green, Part 1 of 3: green360

So as you may have already noticed, I am steadfast supporter of Dimitri Snowden, a great friend and mentor.  Dimitri is an amazing entrepreneur, and a gem in the field of public education.  He is a rare find indeed, with the ability to not only build a school from the ground up, but to service it technologically, build curricula and teach them to the students!  One thing is for certain, he also has a thing or two to teach the adults about a well-rounded education!  The next few posts that I create in the category of education will be dedicated to him, and all he has done for the Paramount School of Excellence.  These entries will capture the true essence of Green and Sustainable education through photographs!  Keep in mind when you are viewing the photos, that these are all ideas that he saw in his mind and was able to bring to life.  The students of PSoE, who live in the inner-city of Indianapolis are able to experience, learn, and grow as responsible citizens, and are equipped to help sustain future communities and generations to come!

As the technology partner for the exhibit, we’ve taken the technologies that change the way we live, work, love, play, think and feel and incorporated them in this year’s Smart Home to not only bring Gizmodo to the exhibit but also designate the home as smart living.

I’m back!

Greetings everyone!

I took a short hiatus this past week, and while it is not my style to leave people hangin’, it felt really good to get a few things done and reflect on my new job as a blogger!  So, this post is my personal blog apology for not being on top of things in the “blogoshpere”, as well as a “thank you” to those who have been reading my blog!  I am new to keeping an online journal, and I am inspired by those who do it so well, with consistency and fresh perspective!  Thank you to those who comment, share, like, and subscribe to my blog,  and most of all, to those who take the time to read it!

My sincerest gratitude,

A New School and the tech360 Movement

Dimitri Seneca Snowden is a pioneer in the field of technology and education. The dictionary defines a pioneer as “one who opens up new areas of thought, research, or development” (answers.com). With the creation of Paramount School of Excellence charter school, he has solidified his place in history. In today’s world and economy it is important that our children have the opportunity to research and develop new methods, practices, and skills that will allow them to compete on a global level. PSoE is on the cutting edge of the theory of “new” school education and will serve as a model for charter schools to come.

PSoE is equipped with interactive white boards, touch screen computers, and computerized student workstations. Mr. Snowden is the brain child behind tech360, a revolutionary service that ensures schools and its students get the best, the most reliable, and the most creative technological innovations available.  Through tech360, he has built an Apple infrastructure and data plan, incorporated iPads and iTouch into daily instructional use, aligned the iPads and iTouch to meet state educational standards, and equipped classrooms with digital white boards, allowing teachers to engage students in fluid instruction. In addition, Mr. Snowden built an all wireless Meraki intranet that provides hi-speed access and browsing.

robo360 is another creation that prepares students in the classroom to be successful on a global level.  Mr. Snowden is the mastermind behind a 900 pound robot named AWSM, which is designed to provide multi-media lessons in the areas of math, science, physics, and language arts. The robo360 curriculum aids teachers in instruction and student assessment. It challenges students to think outside of the box and tap into their creativity and imagination. Dimitri Seneca Snowden’s educational theory and inventions serve as a catalyst of change in the world of education and technology.

Furthermore, the constructional design of PSoE charter school will serve as a model for new schools. PSoE was designed to be environmentally safe for the community. It’s the first K-8 school in the nation to have a wind farm that has five 40-feet, 2500-watt wind turbines that push power back to the electric company in Indianapolis. In addition, the school houses a green room that has a floor made out of 4,000 pounds of recycled rubber from old tires.

Likewise, the school is also designed with Learning Windows. Learning Windows are a dynamic feature that allows students to see the constructional design of the water pipes, electrical wires, and other components of the building. Through Learning Windows, the building serves as a curricular source for instruction.

Meraki is a greek word that means “doing something with soul, creativity, or love. It’s when you put something of yourself into what you are doing” (www.meraki.com). Mr. Snowden has merged his passion for technology and equipping young children to become successful in an ever changing society. He stands as an innovator on the cusp of something extraordinary in the field of technology and education.
