About the VTcite Project
Submitted by Sandy Lathem on Fri, 10/27/2006 - 10:49.
Vermont CITE (Vermont Commons for Information Technology Educators) is a web-based professional learning community for Vermont educators. Its origin can be traced to a Title IID, Enhancing Education Through Technology grant sponsored by the Vermont State Department of Education in November 2005.
In response to this initiative, VITA-Learn, Vermont Institutes, and the University of Vermont joined together to propose the development of a community of technology leaders to:
VTcite provides support for a growing community of technology integration specialists, librarians, media specialists, teachers, and administrators who focus on technology integration as a vehicle to support student achievement improvements.
The goal of VTcite is to build a professional learning community of technology leaders and Vermont educators to lessen the sense of isolation that many technology specialists and teachers feel in the struggle to provide leadership and professional development in their local schools.
The portal (VTcite) is an open space where educators with similar interests meet and exchange ideas. VTcite is a tool that provides a shared repository for field-recommended resources, a searchable database, communication forums for innovations and collaboration, and a calendar of events for professional development opportunities. Any educator interested in participating in VTcite is welcome to self-register and join our community.
