About this Project

This first interation of the Technology Innovations project was designed by Librarian Teresa Diaz (@Ike 2008-2014) in the spring of 2013, and collaboratively facilitated by Ms. Diaz and 6th grade reading teachers Deleyce Tietze and Derrick Readel for 6th Grade ACL classes.  It was adapted in the spring of 2014 and will most likely continue in various permutations each school year. 

The project uses the Guided Inquiry Design model endorsed by NEISD Library Services.
