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 ACTEM and the Maine Historical Society (MHS), we are ready to get started; we want to collect video conversations to be shared through a dedicated section within MHS’ MaineMemory site - “My Maine Stories”. (https://www.mainememory.net/mymainestories)
In addition we will also be seeking to collect 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.
