Technology-rich classroomeMINTS PD: What’s different?
“If I had to sum up what we went through with getting into eMINTS, it would be extensive training, really neat tech tools, collaboration, and teamwork with fellow teachers and students. Even though I have always taught using lots of manipulatives and hands-on techniques, eMINTS has dramatically changed how I teach and how my students learn. For me, it has helped keep me excited about teaching.”Ruth Petsel, 2000-2002 eMINTS, Arcadia Valley R-2, MO
