Innovation: Education

What is Learning Lab?

Welcome to Learning Lab VT

Vermont’s schools are home to some of the most innovative, passionate and skilled educators in the nation. And they’ve teamed up with the Tarrant Institute to open their classrooms to the world. Welcome to Learning Lab VT.

How it works

20 educators across 11 different Vermont schools are opening their doors — literally.

They’re setting aside time in their classes for visitors just like you to see how they make tech-rich, student-centered innovative school change a reality. They and their students attempt to answer this question: “What does effective personalization look like in Vermont schools?”

Who’s on board

Renowned educator and changemaker Susan Hennessey and education consultant Bill Rich are guiding this year’s cohort of teachers through prepping their classes, organizing their thinking and sharing artifacts to help visitors understand how they do what they do so well. Hover over the stars in the map below to meet them through their introductory videos and see each educator’s driving question.

Why schedule a visit?

This network of learning labs will show and tell what it looks like as teachers and their students co-create the kinds of learning experiences that make the challenging journey so worthwhile. To this end, we’d like to invite any educators to come take a look! In this way, we hope seeing will actually be believing.
