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.

The 21st Century Classroom, a podcast of the Tarrant Institute for Innovative Education

New podcast ep:
"How does data-mining affect edtech?"

When your students sign up for that cool new edtech tool, where does their data go? Who's looking at it and what are they doing with it?

In this episode, The Tarrant Institute's Susan Hennessey and Mark Olofson debate how educators can navigate the pitfalls of corporate data-mining in the classroom.
