Maine State Commissioner of Education, Robert Hasson visited China Primary School this past Tuesday accompanied by Lee Anne Larsen, the Maine Department of Education specialist overseeing the K3 Literacy MoMEntum project. China Primary is one of the pilot schools in this program which focuses on using strategic iPod technology to improve literacy in our youngest learners.
“The commissioner was appreciative to all who shared their experiences thus far with the project,” said China Primary Principal Darlene Pietz.
The Commissioner met with Principal Pietz and a few China Primary teachers, visited a 3rg grade classroom and kindergarten classroom, and met with selected students in the library. As part of the pilot project teachers receive professional development and coaching in literacy techniques and technology integration.
