New technology and new Teacher of the Year featured in the latest MTA Today

MTA Today Summer  

The cover story in the latest issue of MTA Today focuses on Burlington, where educators are taking full  advantage of the digital revolution, applying  their knowledge and creativity to help students  learn a variety of subjects in innovative ways.

“We are using the resources students are going to use when they leave school,” explained Assistant Superintendent Patrick Larkin. “When they go into workplaces in the future, they aren’t going to be handed a three-ring binder.”

Pictured on the cover are Kevin Conte, left, and Lyle Ssengonzi Ntuwa working independently on their iPads in Erin Guanci’s first-grade class at the Pine Glen Elementary School. At lower right, Guanci and Amber-Nicole Winsor discuss a lesson.
