Creating a Culture of Learning is an internal strategic planning process facilitating movement toward district wide student-centered learning. The “Best Practice” subjects discussed during the planning process, and covered herein, are specifically selected to focus attention on their district and where on the continuum of the practice does their district currently stand. It then develops goals and strategies designed to “help things go right.”

The Hamilton City School District enlisted the help of Glenn Meeks to develop a vision for 21st Century Learning and Teaching. An advocate for student centered learning; Mr. Meeks took a district team through a comprehensive planning process that resulted in the creation of a “Five Year Roadmap for Effective and Sustainable Learning and Teaching.” That plan has been instrumental in informing our leadership recruitment, professional development, district policies, technology vision, purchases and the integration of technology into teaching and learning. I would highly recommend this process to other districts that understand that technology integration is a must for the future of education.
