We’re now halfway through the Fall 2011 Learning Exchange implementation at DelSesto Middle School, and we’ve come a long way from where we were two months ago. We’ve increased our number of Brown student volunteers from 2 to 16, tripled our program length from last semester, reached three times as many students, and just completed our eighth class. We’ve got seventh graders programming interactive mazes, eighth graders sampling instrumentals and beat-matching them to acapellas, and newly-recruited sixth graders itching to get their hands on the laptops.
Now that we’ve strengthened our on-the-ground presence, we’re revamping our web presence to match it. We’ll soon be posting photos, project samples, lesson plans, and worksheets. You can also follow us on Twitter (@learningexch) to stay updated on exciting trends in education technology and STEM (Science, Technology, Engineering, and Mathematics) fields.
Check back soon!
All the best,
Amit and Nabeel
