New Canaan High School Library in New Canaan, Conn., ... as [a winner] of the association's third annual contest to honor cutting-edge technologies in library services."
Participatory Platforms for Learning, New Canaan High School Library, Connecticut
New Canaan's Participatory Platforms for Learning program strives to cultivate curiosity throughout the learning community and encourage experimentation with new tools for content creation, publication and participation. The program includes deploying the full complement of Google applications; advocating a culture of intellectual freedom; using Twitter for current events research; and using Facebook groups for students to record their research process and provide feedback to others in the group. The program enmeshes learning and the "real world" to teach students digital citizenship by encouraging them to become responsible information consumers, creators and contributors in the public domain.
