An Indiana School System Goes Digital

An Indiana School System Goes Digital | Everything iPads | Scoop.it
In Munster, Ind., a school system turned to laptops and interactive computer programs in a million-dollar digital makeover that included a rental laptop for every student.

The Power of Project Based Learning

The Power of Project Based Learning | Everything iPads | Scoop.it

The Power of Project Learning - Why new schools are choosing an old model to bring students into the 21st century.

As a pedagogical method, it often meets resistance since it doesn’t fit the skill-and-drill model that typically dominates education. But today, it is enjoying a comeback as cutting-edge schools demonstrate just how effectively it imparts the skills students need in today’s workforce.
