Michigan City Schools Tech Program Gets "Innovators Award"
Michigan City Area Schools Superintendent Barbara Eason-Watkins is excited about her school district's "1:1" (one-student, one-device) high tech expansion program that includes Chromebook computers for students. She joined us on "Regionally Speaking" on Tuesday to talk about it.
The program, supported by grants from the community and other sources, gives Michigan City students a chance to organize and enhance their work and stay engaged through "blended learning": the process of combining digital and traditional learning. The program's picked up another "Innovators Award" for the school district from the Society of Innovators in Northwest Indiana.
