The Castilleja "Futures Group" evolved out of our school's One-to-One Laptop Committee that was charged with preparing the school community for an eventual student laptop program. While the student laptop has been put on hold due to extraordinary budget circumstances, we're still going forward with using this committee as a space to discuss the learning ecosystem here at Castilleja. We'll use a variety of spaces, including moodle, to plan and collaborate as a group. This page will primarily contain meeting agendas and notes, while recordings of the meeting and forums will take place over at the moodle virtual learning network.


Futures group email from FirstClass has been summarized and placed in a Google Doc here:
