Stanford University professor emeritus, Larry Cuban, has written a multi-part blog post series about Summit schools called Summit Teachers Integrating Technology. Professor Cuban is a self-proclaimed skeptic of technology in the classroom, but has decided to shift his focus to writing about the "best case of [technology] use in districts and classroom.” That is why he decided to observe several Summit classrooms at Summit Prep (Redwood City) and Summit Rainier (San Jose).
Dr. Cuban has published 8 detailed reports covering different courses, carefully detailing out lesson plans and student and teacher interactions. It’s exciting to see a skeptic thinking differently about technology in the classroom and better understanding how it enhances a personalized learning model. This is in large part to the great work that our teachers are doing in their classrooms.
