The Maine Learning Technology Initiative (MLTI) held its 2015 Summer Institute in July at Bowdoin College in Brunswick. Over 70 Maine educators participated in the three-day event where they learned new techniques and strategies to help address proficiency-based learning, teacher accountability and higher order thinking skills.
The event headlined keynote speakers Chris Lehmann of Philadelphia’s Science Leadership Academy and Erin Knight from Cities of Learning and Badge Alliance. Participants had time to examine and try out new ideas with the support of on-site experts and share strategies to engage students in their learning using technology. Topic strands included iPad workflows, online and blended learning, building digital content, programming with Swift, and more.
