Now that the original Maine Learning Technology Initiative (MLTI) is being replaced by “MLTI v2.0,” a couple of things are clear.
With support from the Association of Computer Technology Educators of Maine (ACTEM) and the Maine Historical Society (MHS), we are ready to get started collecting video conversations. These are being shared via a dedicated page at ACTEM's website (actem.org/MLTIStories) with excerpts to be shared through a dedicated section within MHS’ MaineMemory site - “My Maine Stories”. (www.mainememory.net/mymainestories)
In addition we are also collecting artifacts from those earliest days. Do you have handouts, CDs or DVDs, photographs, flyers, or any other content, physical or digital, that played a role in the early days of MLTI? Please consider contributing them to the collection.
Through the original MLTI, Maine led the world in beginning to define the role of 1:1 access to individual devices. We were actively making history. Please join in, and be part of the effort to document that history. In doing so, we will all be helping to prepare Maine for innovations yet to come.
To participate, or to learn more about the project, please contact Jim Moulton at firstname.lastname@example.org or (207.449.2177) (Or use the form linked in the green box.)
Were you a Maine teacher, student, a student's parent, librarian, technology staff, or education leader in 2001 to 2009 who was impacted by the arrival of the iBooks? Please get in touch to share your story of what you saw, and how this education innovation touched your life.
