Ed-tech stakeholders protest budget cuts

A team of teachers and high school students received video equipment and production training, and they conducted a technology camp for 30 students in their local district. The camp emphasized video production technology and project-based learning.

Students exhibited significant gains in technology skills, and professional development involved creative camera techniques, lighting and sound, and video editing, all aligned with the International Society for Technology in Education’s National Educational Technology Standards (NETS).

And with a $540,000 EETT grant, the Vermont Virtual Learning Cooperative (VTVLC), which already offers high school courses online in its first year, will expand into middle school curriculum. Schools partner with VTVLC and identify a teacher to facilitate online learning for the program across the state. Teachers are trained to facilitate online courses, and in return, their schools receive seats in VTVLC for their students.

VTVLC also offers summer credit recovery courses and online summer school.
