OKINAWA, JAPAN — June 17, 2010 — On the 35th Anniversary of the Pacifica publication, DoDEA Pacific has released a new online edition to meet modern expectations.
Similar to previous editions, the online version includes photos and accompanying captions organized into three key areas of active learning: classroom, cultural and extra-curricular activities. PacificaOnline! also includes video submissions that capture innovative lessons and activities.
“We are working very hard across DoDEA Pacific to continue transforming our schools for 21st Century learning,” said DoDEA Pacific Director Diana Ohman, “and it’s vitally important that our products and services incorporate 21st Century technologies for our students and families.”
The photos and videos provide a visual narrative for the rich and rigorous learning environments found in DoDEA Pacific schools. PacificaOnline! was developed by area office staff with all content provided electronically by teachers and educational technologists across the DoDEA Pacific schools.
