Welcome back St. Luke’s families. I hope the school break was rejuvenating. Elisabeth and I enjoyed a tranquil week on a white beach, and as much as we love home, were not in a hurry to return. To my delight, one of the first communications I opened back on the Hilltop was an email from SLS parent Bob Lord. Bob shared an article about his son Drew’s (’14) experiences with “cloud technologies” at SLS (see A Real Cloud Power User below).
Bob also praised Lee Bruner (US Technology Coordinator and Spanish Teacher) for his “great use/integration of the iPad, Twitter and Evernote” in his Spanish class. A high compliment from any parent but all the more rewarding coming from a “rock star” of the digital world (I’m quoting one of my team members). Bob is the Global CEO for Razorfish, one of the largest interactive marketing and technology companies in the world. He has been extremely generous with his time and expertise, recently participating in an SLS technology “think tank.”
My thanks go out the Lord family for placing this wonderful spotlight on SLS, and to Lee and the many other SLS teachers who create exceptional learning experiences that serve our students now and into the future. Take it away Drew…
A Real Cloud Power User
A paperless classroom can turn a student into a cloud computing power user, tweeting his homework, taking tests on an iPad, and replacing old-school spiral notebooks with apps. Drew Lord, a sophomore at St. Luke’s School in New Canaan, CT, is glad his teachers are using cloud technology effectively.
