How can Technology Enhance ELMS Learning Experience?

Expeditionary Learning Middle School

Foundation Grants
Back to projects

At the Syracuse Expeditionary Middle School, curriculum is organized into interdisciplinary “expeditions” and teachers often use the greater Syracuse community as their classroom. Students are expected to research, gather observations and data to both ask and answer relevant questions. This grant will increase the engagement of this work with the infusion of technology. Students keep portfolios of their work and regularly reflect on their learning and this grant will allow them to create a blog and do their work on iPads. The addition of technology will enhance the school’s annual leadership overnight adventure-based outing. There will be a connection between the expedition’s fieldwork and research using the Internet, books, newspapers, and blogs. Using the multitude of free apps that are available, students and teachers will connect the classroom learning to adventure-based education.
