This fall, students in District 191 elementary schools will have more access to high-quality learning resources and tools for communication and collaboration thanks to expanded use of Chromebooks as personal learning devices. This is made possible thanks to the voter-approved Vision One91 referendum.
Beth Raebel and Colleen Coleman, both teachers in Burnsville-Eagan-Savage School District 191, have been named TIES 2016 Exceptional Teachers and will be honored during the TIES Education Technology Conference in December.
They are among teachers selected for modeling best practices in using technology to engage students in learning. School districts participating in the TIES Exceptional Teachers award program are members of TIES, an education technology consortium of 48 Minnesota school districts.
As part of Vision One91 and an increase in learning technology throughout District 191 schools, all Burnsville Alternative High School students will be receiving Chromebooks to use as personal learning devices this school year. Chromebooks will provide students with access to high-quality learning resources and give students the ability to create digital and multimedia projects that showcase their learning.
