Below is an update regarding the Immersive Technology (IMT) Program (grades 5-10) at HCOS, as many great things have been happening since our IMT grad ceremonies.
We have expanded our IMT core offerings as follows:
– IMT 5 (LA, Science, Bible & Applied Design/Skills) with Sinead Roy (firstname.lastname@example.org);
– IMT 6 (LA, Science, Bible & Applied Design/Skills) with Heather Douglas (email@example.com);
– IMT 7 (LA, Social Studies, Bible and Applied Design/Skills) with Danny Snodgrass (firstname.lastname@example.org); and
– IMT 8 (LA, Social Studies, Bible and Applied Design/Skills) with Shannon Beglaw (email@example.com).
Perhaps the most exciting news however is that we have hired Alisha Hadley. Alisha is a very experienced French teacher who is excited to be offering Immersive Worlds French in our French World for grades 5-7 ($125). Alisha plans to subsequently continue this highly oral and immersive approach up to grade 12. 40-50 students found their way onto the waiting list before registrations even opened. Here’s a brief video showing about 15% of the environment that will be used. http://bit.ly/1ekjVVz Parents can now enroll on Encom, or contact Gord Holden at firstname.lastname@example.org for more info.
We also have Virtual Worlds Art 08 and 10 courses with Ryan Titley (email@example.com), but we’ve also added an IMT VBS Simulation Development 09 course by Michelle Nimchuk (firstname.lastname@example.org). This VBS course will not only cover the Applied Skills 9 outcomes, but will equip students to create virtual simulation games for business, education, and commercial gaming.

IMT doesn’t excludes those with Special Needs either. April McLeod (email@example.com) provides both group and one-to-one support to students across 3 levels of experience and ability. This is a truly incredible program with transformational results. If you know of a student that might benefit from this, please contact April directly for additional info.
