Innovative EdTech Programs Happening In Schools

By Katie Lepi 

his year marked the third year of the $200,000 Follett Challenge, which encourages K-12 schools around the US to share their innovative programs that have been put in place to prepare our modern students for the demands of the 21st century.Recently, the 4 semifinalists plus the “People’s Choice” winners —were announced. We thought that their programs were pretty cool and worth sharing. The winners were based on the number of votes they received from the public.
