Great Information on the Congressional Hearing on Technology Use in Schools!

Speak Up 2011 Educators Report is Now Available!

Personalizing the Classroom Experience – Teachers, Librarians and Administrators Connect the Dots with Digital Learning

This year’s congressional briefing was another great success with over 75 people in attendance! The Briefing included a moderated panel discussion with Educators and the release of the Speak Up 2011 report: Personalizing the Classroom Experience – Teachers, Librarians and Administrators Connect the dots with Digital Learning”.
This report is the second in a two part series to document the key national findings from Speak Up 2011 and focuses on how today’s educators are personalizing the learning process for students. The ways that educators are personalizing learning centers around their own experiences with online learning, socially-based media and digital content - much like the students in their own classrooms are already doing!
The key questions being addressed in this report include:
  • What are educators’ experiences with online learning?
  • How does it inform their perspectives on student learning?
  • What policies and practices are administrators considering around the “Bring Your Own Technology” movement?
  • How do we transform the classroom from a “one size fits all” model to a truly individualized learning experience for students?

Great Story Teller Project!

Another great project from our first graders in Winthrop, Maine to our friends at the Sinarmas World Academy in Indonesia.
Here is a link to a book that was written about Maine by one of our Maine authors... we did it on the ipads and the kids did some of the typing but not everyone... those who wanted to did!  thanks... Alison
