Fort Leavenworth technology program honored by Apple

The Fort Leavenworth USD#207 Board of Education announces that CYBER TEAMS has been named an Apple Distinguished Program for 2012-2013 school year for its innovative use of iPad and other technologies.

The effort is in support of a professional development program which creates activities that incorporate serious gaming and challenge-based learning activities.

“Due to military deployment schedules, a typical student is with us fewer than two years. CYBER-TEAMS is designed to spark threshold moments and interest in STEM careers that will continue long after they have left our community,” said Alan Landever, Director of Technology Services at USD 207.

The Apple Distinguished Program designation is reserved for programs that meet criteria for innovation, leadership, and educational excellence, and demonstrate a consistent vision of exemplary learning environments.
