Meet Oakridge’s new exemplary project coordinator – Sean.Jones@apsva.us
A mosaic is defined as a combination of diverse elements forming a more or less coherent whole. Oakridge’s exemplary project(Mosaic) is all about how each unique individual in our school has the ability to make a greater impact by working with others. Our students, families, and staff have social capital that can be used to enrich our learning. Mosaic will work to improve the school, the community, the region, the state, the nation, and the world through meaningful student and staff co-led projects. The projects will start small on the school level and progress to what we can do in our macrocosm. Students will learn about the engineering process as well as growth mindset, understanding that no matter how great something is, anything and everything can be improved. There will be a large focus on the 4 c’s, Creativity, Collaboration, Critical Thinking, and Communication. Combined, the four C’s empower students to become one-person think tanks. Then, when those students get together, they can achieve almost anything!
