A couple weeks ago on August 7th, RMS Associate Principal Amanda Yates and RMS Technology Coordinator Martin Warren traveled to Burlington, Vermont and met with representatives of the Tarrant Institute for Innovative Education. The Tarrant Institute provides guidance and support to schools in Vermont with their 1:1 programs.
We spent two hours discussing our program with Associate Directors Penny Bishop and John Downs. Topics ranged from efficiently deploying apps, how to measure program effectiveness, student and community support and involvement, teacher training and support and digital citizenship. We learned a lot from our visit and have several ideas we will be trying out this year.
Ms. Yates also posted her thoughts on the day on her blog at http://rmsyates.blogspot.com/.
