iPad pilot expands Spencer Fields named technology to middle schools Northlander of the Year Spencer Fields, manager of the Kansas City office in Mercer, was named the 2012 Northlander of the Year at the Northland Regional Chamber of Commerceâ€™s annual banquet Jan. 19. His wife, close friends, supporters, as well as chamber members accompanied Fields to celebrate his award during the banquet at Argosy Casino Hotel & Spa. The Northlander of the Year award is given annually to recognize an individual who has made an outstanding contribution to the betterment of the Northland. Fields has served the Northland in a variety of ways, including chairmanship on the NRCC Board of Directors to lead the development of a strategic plan in the 2000s, according to a press release. The chamber was not the only volunteer organization he helped with his human resources and financial background. He served on the Board of Education for North Kansas City Schools as president for four out of the 12 years he was active. Fields also has been a long-term member and chairman of the North Kansas City Schools Education Foundation, helping launch its March to a Million campaign goal in 2011. His commitment to help improve the Northland education system for the youth, including his two children, has created a direction of innovation in the district, the release states. In addition, Fields served for the Northland Health Care Access Board for many years, helping expand many of its programs to help patients in the area. Fieldsâ€™ involvement outside of his day job demonstrates how much one man
expand this middle school technology program in the future. Those teachers selected to participate volunteered for the program nearly a year ago and were chosen by their building principals as ideal candidates for the iPad pilot. These teachers represent many content areas and are participating in a variety of professional development opportunities to ensure student success with the new device. More than 1,730 middle
school students are projected to participate in the pilot program. Students will be taught expectations for appropriate use of the technology and tips for the care of the iPad mini. The iPad mini is for classroom use and will not go home with students. The program is set to begin in late February with a phased-in rollout at each school, one building at a time. â€” North Kansas City Schools
