Welcome to the future of Middle School
New: The Tarrant
Foundation has announced another $5 million gift to the Tarrant
Institute for Innovative Education, increasing our annual budget to
$1.5 million. The new funding will allow us to triple the number of
Vermont schools we're able to serve.
What We Offer
The Tarrant Institute provides a variety of services to help schools make the transition to engaging, technology-rich teaching and learning.
In exchange for their substantial commitment to a new vision for teaching and learning, we offer our partner schools intensive professional development, leadership preparation and planning, and small grants for innovative technologies -- all free of charge.
To the broader community, we conduct extensive research, evaluation,
dissemination and outreach.
"Sometimes I'm taken aback when colleagues suggest that teachers who embrace technology "tool hops" without intentionality simply like to play with the next new, shiny toy.
Often those same colleagues see blended learning, a mix of traditional face-to-face and digital tools for instruction and assessment, as a method that cedes control of the learning to a computer."
Professional development coordinator Susan Hennessey talks about how to move from idea to practice with 21st century teaching.
