Beginning this school year, Osceola High School will launch 3DE, an innovative high school model proven to accelerate student engagement and academic outcomes in traditional public high schools.
“We, at Osceola High School, are excited to partner with 3DE to offer our students the opportunity to engage in project-based learning, which uses case methodology to integrate real-world connectivity to the standard high school experience. In addition, we look forward to working with our regional and national business partners to create opportunities for students to engage in learning that will expand and diversify the local talent pipeline,” said Dr. Nia Campbell, Principal of Osceola High School.
The instructional model at 3DE schools is based around case method. These cases are a platform to connect an interdisciplinary project-based approach to standards-based learning. As the underpinning framework, case method integrates real-world concepts and experiences across all disciplines and subject areas. Activated through local and national partners, students gain access and skills to navigate careers in high growth industries.
This year’s freshmen class will engage with a variety of businesses and professionals, some of which include Arby’s, Delta Air Lines, imec, Jackson Therapy Partners/Jackson Nurse professionals/Avant Healthcare professionals, and SunTrust. As they matriculate throughout their high school career, they will continue to engage with a diversity of industries.
This past summer, teachers from Osceola High School participated in training led by the Teaching and Learning Team at 3DE. 3DE will continue to provide support through a dedicated on-site school team, as well as engagement with the regional and national team. Junior Achievement will continue to source partnerships with businesses that are stimulating local economic development to create a pipeline of meaningful experiences to further student growth and development.
“As Central Florida continues to diversify our economy, to prepare for the new jobs in the new economy with rapidly changing technology, and to insure we have the workforce who can fulfill our workforce needs, we are delighted to bring this new innovative educational opportunity to our students in Osceola County,” shared Kathy Panter, President & CEO, Junior Achievement of Central Florida. “We continue to expand our local partners to compliment the national case challenge experiences and build a consortium of leaders who are spearheading efforts to create more opportunities for students to engage in learning that will expand and diversify the local talent pipeline.”
