The Tarrant Institute for Innovative Education facilitates and showcases examples of effective 21st century learning and edtech ideas for educators. Our contributing writers are educators and administrators with a passion for edtech and a willingness to innovate. We help educators make the most of emerging technologies to increase student engagement.
As part of the College of Education and Social Services at the University of Vermont, we support the rollout of 1:1 internet-enabled devices to our partnering schools and provide funding for technology innovations within our cohort. We’re helping to move Vermont’s middle schools toward a technology-rich, student-centered outcome.
Examples of amazing edtech in Vermont:
- “See America” with students at The Cabot School (Cabot, VT)
- The Wild City Project at Essex Middle School (Essex Center, VT)
- ePortfolios with Evernote at Harwood Union Middle School (Moretown VT)
- Get students to care about copyright with Hunt Middle School (Burlington VT)
- STEM Storytelling in Touchcast with Peoples Academy Middle School (Morrisville VT)
- Edmunds Middle School students building place-based games with a local museum (Burlington VT)
We’re a part of the Middle Grades Collaborative and support the annual Middle Grades Institute conference. We’ve also support 21st century learning with the Tarrant Code Camp, a summer camp for students and educators to learn mobile app development, web and game development, robotics and computer art in concert with Vermont industry professionals.
