BHS-Led Initiative Highlighted By Edutopia

Massachusetts Commissioner of Education Mitchell Chester stopped by BHS to witness our efforts.

In case you missed it, the BHS-led MA Digital Publication Collaborative was highlighted in a blog post on Edutopia (the website of the George Lucas Education Foundation).

Here is an excerpt explaining what the initiative is all about:

"There is a growing buzz in the education community about the possibility of moving away from traditional textbooks. While the objective seems clear as to why we should be making this move, the question of how to transition this great shift remains. Educators creating their own digital resource for the classroom possesses great value, but at this point there are still more questions than answers. A group of Massachusetts educators got together and tried to answer some of the lingering questions."
