    “Finding Your Swing”

    During the 2017-18 school year, Rye Junior High School completed a year-long project called “Finding Your Swing”, linked to a school book read of The Boys in the Boat by Daniel James Brown.  The term “swing” is used within the competitive rowing community to describe when a rowing crew is in perfect sync with each other and the boat is moving forward at optimum performance. We used the term as a theme for the year to present numerous interdisciplinary challenges to students. 

    One focus of the project was that each grade level (6thgrade - 8th grade) built two rowboats and their corresponding oars. Each grade level constructed a different model boat. At the end of the year, May 31st, RJHS held a “Rye Rowing Regatta” in Rye Harbor at which time grade level teams raced their rowboats through a marked course within the harbor. The entire community was invited to line the shores to cheer on the student performances and accomplishments!

    Read more about the project in this UNH article.

With personalization at the core of the gears, Pelham’s FRS plan aims to achieve the district’s vision of “inspiring success one mind at a time.”

Beginning with a systemic planning process, FRS helps district and school leaders develop the human and technological capacity needed to personalize student learning. FRS has a growing collection of FREE research-based planning tools including the FRS Framework5 Step Planning Process, and a series of webinars/blogs and resources to support all district’s digital transformation and modernization efforts.

    What: Digital Learning Specialists Roundtable - Elem ~ New for 2018/19 
    Where: Peter Woodbury School, 180 County Road, Bedford, NH 03110 
    When: Thursday, 14 Nov 2018

    NHSTE is proud to announce a new professional development offering for the
    2018/19 school year ~ Digital Learning Specialist Roundtables

    The second Digital Learning Specialist Roundtable is being hosted by Nicole Cassamassino at Bedford's Peter Woodbury School for elementary school Technology Integration Teachers/Specialists.  Part Learning Tour, part EdCamp, and part discussion group, the attendees set the discussion topics for the day and support each other with their challenges.

    We know that professional development is important for everyone. In many cases, technology integration teachers are solo in their own buildings or districts. This roundtable opportunity is for those technology integration teachers interested in having conversations about particular topics to improve instruction for staff and students in their own district. Topics/discussion will be tailored based on participant attendees thoughts. Time will be built into schedule for a tour of school/staff conversation. Let’s get together to have thoughtful conversations to help move our schools forward.

    A light breakfast and lunch are included in the registration fee.  Attendees are encouraged to bring both their best practices and challenges.

    NHSTE is recruiting hosts in locations around the state, for additional roundtables in 2019.  If you are interested in hosting a Roundtable event at your school, please contact, Cyndi Dunlap, NHSTE Professional Learning Chair at cdunlap55@comcast.net.

    Registration is limited to 20 participants, so register before the school year begins to ensure a seat!  NHSTE Premium members receive advance notice of this opportunity.

    Target Audience:

    Digital Learning Specialists (Technology Integration Teachers) at the middle/high school levels

    Friends of NHSTE and New Hampshire Colleagues, 

    This post is targeted to anyone from New Hampshire (NHSTE member or not) who is going to ISTE18 in Chicago at the end of June. Hard to believe that the school year is nearly over and in about a month some of us head to Chicago for ISTE 2018!!!

    NHSTE is once again planning the New Hampshire Networking Dinner during ISTE.  We generally meet after the opening keynote on Sunday evening, June 24th, probably around 8:00pm ish this year at a restaurant near the NHSTE hotel.  This event has ranged from a small group of 12 to 15 to a group of over 40 of us! We have gone to some gourmet restaurants and some more casual locations.  I have already located two options close the NHSTE hotel, the Fairfield Inn & Suites Chicago Downtown, 216 E Ontario Street Chicago, IL 60611.  Once I have an idea as to how many are interested, I will finalize the location.   Anyone from New Hampshire (and their guests) is invited to attend.  

    Please complete this quick 5 question survey to let us know your plans. The options on the survey include "probably' and "maybe", so you do not need to be sure of your plans at this time.  Those providing me with their email address on the survey will be added to a list of individuals to receive detailed ISTE18 information from NHSTE moving forward.

    If you have not already done so, I invite you to complete the very short survey for the ISTE18 NHSTE Networking Dinner RSVP at:
