Penn Hills school chosen for national tech program
Linton Middle School in the Penn Hills School District is one of 50 schools joining the pilot year of the Dynamic Learning Project, a national program supported by Digital Promise, EdTechTeam and Google, aimed at improving education equity by empowering teachers to leverage technology in more powerful ways. The school was selected for the program by Digital Promise based on need (measured by percentage of students eligible for free and reduced lunch), existing technology infrastructure, and innovative leadership committed to helping their teachers succeed.
The Dynamic Learning Project is designed to help deliver on the promise of technology by investing in a school’s greatest assets: teachers. It’s not just about access to technology, but how prepared teachers feel to meaningfully use that technology in their classrooms. The Dynamic Learning Project will sponsor and train a coaching fellow, in most cases a former classroom teacher, who will provide personalized, tech-based coaching to help educators in their community leverage technology in transformative ways.
