Welcome to the future of Middle School
We currently partner with
nearly two dozen schools around Vermont, supporting them as
they move towards a tech-rich, student-centered model of young
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.
Project-based learning (PBL) is a wonderful way to engage students in their own learning. But if the community is not ready to feel safe, take risks, and be supportive it can fall flat. Here are some ways to build a PBL-ready classroom culture from Day One.
- #ready2launch: student leadership
- Climate, Community & Voice from Day One
- Use Thinglink to explore identity
- Revolutionize student research with Padlet
- How mobile devices can enhance field trips
- Going on Google Expeditions
- Project-based learning and math
