Robert Hall is the principal of Arts and Media Prep in New York City. The school has partnered with iZone360, a program within the New York City Department of Education, to incorporate technology into classroom instruction and administrative effectiveness in unique, innovative ways. Mr. Hall has focused on transparency within grading, using Google Documents as a method of editing and communicating, providing all students with e-mail addresses and reflective blogs, and using the New Tech Network’s Echo program to develop the project management skills of his students.
Hall joins Ted Bauer, the Learning Matters web producer, for a far-ranging discussion on the ‘real-time’ nature of education, guiding students towards being self-directed, the true role of technology in the classroom, and how to connect project-based learning to a testing world. It’s an interesting discussion, and we hope you enjoy it.
