Give Randy Cook and Maureen Flynn the chance to develop something new and they will shoot for the top. The two Mississauga teachers jumped at the chance to create the International Business and Technology (IBT) Program and now students are lining up to get in. The program, offered at Allan A. Martin Senior Public School, is designed to create self-directed learners by encouraging students to use technology and launch entrepreneurial ventures. The program is cross-curricular, and students are evaluated on standards of behaviour and responsibility developed in consultation with the corporate community. An optional program, IBT began with seven Grade 7 students in 1995 and grew to 140 the next year. Since then the number of staff delivering the program has been doubled and IBT has been expanded to include Grade 8 students.
