Help DoDEA Improve Your Schools
The Department of Defense Education Activity (DoDEA) is seeking input from students, parents, teachers, and community members on ways to improve school designs as they begin a five-year construction initiative to build or do major renovations at 100 schools worldwide.
This modernization initiative will replace an aging inventory of facilities with state-of-the-art schools to support dependent education for the next 45 years. To achieve this goal, DoDEA has established a three phase plan:
- Phase 1 - bring together experts from industry, educational leaders, and futurists (Completed)
- Phase 2 - receive ideas and input from customers
- Phase 3 - analysis and synthesis of all submitted ideas and input
Parents and community members are invited to share ideas at http://21stcentury.dodea.edu/. Submissions can be in the form of videos, images, written narratives or audio files. All student work must be submitted by a teacher using the established Intranet site to ensure adult moderation.
DoDEA will take innovations in education, curriculum delivery, use of technology, and the growing expectations for sustainability and energy conservation into consideration as the process moves forward.
Until military families are relieved of the weight of war, we hope you will continue to contribute to their wellbeing.
