Voices Project Team to Present at NECC 2008

Our team is happy to report that our proposal, Digital Investigators: Using digitized media for Project-Based Learning, was accepted by the International Society for Technology in Education (ISTE) to be presented at its annual National Educational Computing Conference. NECC 2008 will be held in San Antonio, TX from June 29-July 2.

Project directors, Molly Laden, Robert Simpson, and Dianne Stratton, decided to select the Bring Your Own Laptop (BYOL) session format so that participants can explore primary source documents embedded into the American History units developed through Voices Rising. The BYOL format also allows the team to share 1-to-1 laptop strategies being implemented through a separate state Technology Enhancement grant. Currently we are providing materials and training to help high school teachers integrate technology skills into their teaching of American history. Look for further details about the session on the NECC site in February, 2008.
