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.
"In a recent Twitter chat #vted we were discussing digital

Labels typically get in the way of fully understanding people, and
these terms 'digital native' and 'digital immigrant' smack of ageism
and false assumptions."
ANESU innovation coach Lauren Parren unpacks some of the problems with these popular edtech terms.
