Today, Cindy’s tech colleagues are giving her a retirement party. As these things seem to go, a photo of Cindy appeared in today’s local paper recognizing one of the final projects she has worked on (GF Herald article on Books of Hope – free registration required). Cindy thought the article focused too much on her comments and not enough on the teachers who executed the project. Possibly – but Cindy is quotable and has a nice way of framing what the students accomplished.
BTW – the title of the newspaper article, “From Students to Teachers”, could serve as a summary for a what we think may be one of the more productive models of project based learning – technology projects that are essentially peer tutoring.
