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.
5th grade Peoples Academy Middle Level educator Hannah Lindsey shares how she used the learning management system (LMS) edmodo for a literacy unit, to encourage social reading with her students.
"In terms of overall engagement, using edmodo had my students waiting with bated breath for weeks. Every day they wanted to know if we were going to get started. Compared to excitement around regular literature circles, this was a huge improvement."
