John Adams Middle School Goes Interactive

John Adams Middle School Goes Interactive

Students and teachers at John Adams Middle School in Edison, New Jersey use interactive Promethean education technology to enhance learning. The challenge to change education involves a team effort. It also involves looking at the learning environment in a different way.

I traveled to Edison Township to find out what Edison Township School District leaders are doing to make that happen. I discovered that the excitement for using new technologies is being led from the top by Superintendent Richard O’Malley, and backed by a positive and well-informed Board of Education. The Foundation is firm, as well, from John Adam’s Principal, Joan Valentine, and a staff that knows how to teach—with or without interactive devices—or wiring.
