Developing College Knowledge

We all know, either through personal experience or by listening to frequent reporting on the topic, that student loan debt is a major problem in our country. If we want to help our students develop college readiness, we should be making them aware of resources that can help them to make sound decisions about college, and providing them with opportunities to explore those resources.

Recapping the Technology Integration Initiative

The Technology Integration Initiative wrapped up this month. We'll hear from a participant about her biggest takeaways from this 5-month professional development cohort - such as using common, non-educational apps for educational purposes!
