We are happy to announce this year’s Gala celebration and its theme Innovation: Imagining the Future. That innovative imagining examines the applied creative uses of technology (of all kinds) in Waldorf pedagogy. This questioning and envisioning fits squarely into the ongoing and lively national debate about integration of technology in education. The Waldorf age-appropriate approach to technology that supports independent expression is a model that inspires many and that demonstrates the value of our inspirational education. Rudolf Steiner, the founder of Waldorf education, pointed to the importance of introducing adolescent students to the many facets of science and technology that they will encounter later in their lives. Alongside this, state of the art technology tools are imperative to effectively communicate the Chicago Waldorf School’s mission and vision to the world.
Support progressive technology that fosters innovation at the Chicago Waldorf School and propels us to an exciting and brilliant future!
Come join our Chicago Waldorf School community for this enchanting evening that celebrates our community and the school we love. Raise your paddle in support of our school! The gifts raised from the 2012 Gala will support our Strategic Plan and our Vision through technology initiatives. Be entertained by the good company, fine meal, music and dancing in the after-dinner celebration.
You can expect a few surprises will be unveiled in the gala presentation, so know its a party not to be missed.
Through your generosity, the gifts raised at the 2012 Gala will go towards implementing a wide range of critical technology from curriculum to administrative based needs and will:
- Enhance middle and high school capabilities
- Launch progressive tools, and upgrade our infrastructure
- Advance impactful communication and marketing tools
