Students Visit U.M.O. For Technology Education

At the end of May, as part of the Maine Learning Technology Initiative (M.L.T.I.) students from G.R.M.S. spend the day on the University of Maine campus.

Adam Mitchell, a seventh grader at Gardiner Regional Middle School, likes technology and how it impacts the world around us. He learned from the Maine Learning Technology Initiative Conference held at the University of Maine, “Dreams become reality when you put your mind to it.”

Tom Landberg, G.R.M.S. assistant principal, helped make the school’s first time participating in the conference possible. He noted, “The 2017 M.L.T.I. Student Conference will benefit our students for a lifetime. The opportunity to meet with other highly knowledgeable and great minded students from across the state of Maine, Apple professionals, Maine educators, and College and University professors yields a unique learning opportunity for our students. I am so proud that almost 40 students were able to attend from Gardiner Regional Middle!”

At the conference G.R.M.S. students sported their new M.L.T.I. 2017 t-shirts with over one thousand other Maine students in the Collins Center for the Arts for an inspirational keynote presentation. Then they headed out across campus to break out sessions featuring a variety of technology related topics.

“I learned about the extensive research and learning involved in coding and app creation,” Brody Richards shared. Alyssa Firth was one of the excited students who learned how to code a drone. Russell Anderson, G.R.M.S. S.T.E.M. teacher observed, “ It was a feast for the senses, with students being both motivated and challenged through hands-on use of technology. It was a great opportunity for our students to make a solid connection between technology learned in the classroom and real-world application. Our kids got a taste of technology being used both now and in the future, and how they can be a part of that future.”
