The eMINTS 4 Administrators year-long program is designed to provide principals and other school or district administrators with the knowledge, skills and support they need to implement the eMINTS model schoolwide.
So what kinds of technology applications does eMINTS foster and support?
The last eight to ten years have been very difficult times," says eMINTS director Monica Beglau.
Two years of external evaluation of the eMINTS program have found that students enrolled in third and fourth grade eMINTS classrooms scored higher on statewide academic tests, in every subject area, when compared with students on a statewide basis.
eMINTS Instructional Program Leader, "The eMINTS program is deeply appreciative of eZedia's willingness to allow our teachers and students to explore the rich world of multimedia software.
I am very pleased that eZedia is being evaluated this year in the eMINTS pilot program.
eMINTS (enhancing Missouri's Instructional Networked Teaching Strategies) is administered by the Missouri Research and Education Network (MOREnet) in collaboration with Missouri's Department of Elementary and Secondary Education (DESE).
For years eMINTS has been providing our highly effective face-to-face training workshops to teachers, but a national expansion effort has been hampered by high implementation costs and a myriad of logistical issues," said Monica Beglau, the eMINTS National Center Director.
The remaining six modules will be produced subsequently and become two or three part series featuring other existing eMINTS instructional units.
Our customized professional development solutions allow educational organizations like eMINTS and school districts to reach more teachers with cost-effective, consistent training that boosts student achievement," said Jim Bowler, President and CEO of Classroom Connect.
The eMINTS project will use Classroom Connect's Customized Professional Development solution that also includes face-to-face workshops and made-to-order conferences for K-12 educators.
