All the best,
New England Educators,
You are cordially invited to attend the ASSISTments Showcase on the
evening of October 3rd, 2011 at Worcester Polytechnic Institute in
Worcester, Massachusetts. ASSISTments has been developed over the
past 8 years with grant funding from the National Science
Foundation, the US Department of Education, and most recently Bill
and Melinda Gates Foundation Next Generation Learning Challenge
(NGLC) funds. It is a teaching and learning resource that uniquely
blends assessments with assistance in an online, but
not real-time web-dependent environment. ASSISTments was
highlighted in the National Education Technology Plan is currently
being used by hundreds of teachers and thousands of students
primarily throughout New England. This is NOT a commercial product,
this is a FREE research-based resource that has been developed and
tested (and continues to be tested) that takes advantage of the
latest information on guided instruction and mastery learning.
Speak with principals and teachers who have realized amazing results
with ASSISTments. If you have internet access in your schools and
most any type of computing devices - desktops, laptops, netbooks,
iPod touches, iPads, tablets, or smart phones - you have the
resources to implement ASSISTments. What you need is an
understanding of what ASSISTments can do for your teachers and
students and how to tap the existing resources and NGLC grant
scholarships for professional development and implementation
assistance. All of this and more will be available at the
ASSISTments Showcase in October.
Please be sure to RSVP online at http://tinycc/ASSISTmentsShowcase.
At CMTC, Neil Heffernan, the lead developer of ASSISTments, is
highlighted as a SpotLight Speaker on both Tuesday and Wednesday, as
well as participating in the Share-A-Thon.
Please feel free to forward this email to anyone who you think would
be interested in the ASSISTments Showcase, it is open to educators
across New England.
