Tampa Bay Times writer Jeff Solochek recently visited two Learner-Active, Technology-Infused schools in the Tampa Bay area. He describes his experience and observations in his February 7 article, “Pasco Schools Find Success Letting Students Make More Choices.

“When you take a standard and create a ‘felt need,’ they really want to learn. These students are making choices about what they’re doing, how they’re going to do it. It teaches everything.”
— Julie Marks, Principal of Chester E. Taylor Elementary School

“The kids know exactly what they’re supposed to be doing. They’re choosing what activities they want to do to learn the standards. They own it. “
— Colleen Beaudoin, Pasco County School Board Member
