The Tarrant Institute for Innovative Education at the University of Vermont recently featured two podcasts exploring the work of Cabot students and teachers.
"Student TED Talks, Sound Sculptures and a Funk Band” spotlights the evening exhibition of learning about the study of water resources and environmental impacts.
Cabot’s Latin American Studies students gave TED Talks to a receptive and enthusiastic audience, and Cabot Maker Science students produced circuitry-powered research exhibits. View photographs from the event, listen to the podcast, and read the podcast transcript here.
“Beyond the Audience of One: Why Digital Composition Matters” is a guest blog post by Julia Hewitt featuring the observations of Cabot student Henry Burke and former Cabot students Jeremiah Breer, Lars Hammer, Orion Lay-Sleeper, Gala Morse, Kassandra Morse, Timothy Mueller-Harder, and Megan Walker as well as writers Bonnie Kaplan and Barry Lane. All discuss the ways digital technologies, in providing a critical authentic audience for student writing, increase student motivation and the quality of their writing. Visit the blog, listen to the podcast, read the transcript, and view a number of student digital compositions.
