Each year for the past decade, SETDA has honored one school across the United States with the Student Voices Award, which honors an outstanding K-12 school or district that has used technology to improve the educational achievement of their students.
St. Albans City School students highlighted examples of how technology tools and resources provided them with personalized and project-based learning opportunities. They also shared the e-portfolio system that captures each child’s learning through their years from pre k-12.
