Southlake, TX (PRWEB) February 22, 2013
The Clariden School of Southlake’s Head of School, Jenifer Fox, spoke at the Online Education Symposium for Independent Schools this month in Marina Del Rey, Calif.
Ms. Fox, author of Your Child’s Strengths and The Book of Lists, is a nationally-recognized leader in strengths-based education, having just this year opened The Global Strengths program for 7th-12th graders at The Clariden School in Southlake, Tex.
During the Symposium Ms. Fox spoke about using technology-driven tools to develop a new curriculum for secondary education.
“Many schools are looking to add blended online learning for their students. What we’re doing at The Clariden School is the wave of the future; happening right now, “said Ms. Fox. “ This symposium was held specifically for select private schools looking for a robust 21st-Century learning environment. We’ve rewritten our curriculum to meet the needs of self-motivated students who need a rigorous timetable that applies a project-based approach, co-mingling with online learning.”
In addition to The Clariden School, other well-known Texas private schools were represented at the symposium: The Hockaday School, St. Marks School of Texas, Fort Worth Country Day, Parish Episcopal School and Trinity Valley.
The Online Education Symposium for Independent Schools was conducted by Educators’ Collaborative, a consortium of former independent school heads who provide consulting services for educational institutions.
