Science Leadership Academy March 26, 2008

Chris Lehman, a principal at the Science Leadership Academy in Philadelphia presented to our EC&I 831 course last night.  He was a very insightful and optimistic person who tries to inspire others about the use of technology in the classroom. 

 His school is a great model to others by showing how technology allows us to think differently and these new tools can have a bigger impact on student learning.  SLA has a a strong mission:

“How do we learn?
“What can we create?
“What does it mean to lead?

and what makes them successful is that they stick to it. I liked how the involvement with parents is a crucial part by providing them with the broadcasting of daily announcements, workshops and training.  Throughout out the EC&I 831 course, we have heard many times before that education  to parents, teachers and students about the Internet and the use of open source tools is key.
