In an article title "Pennsylvania superintendent embraces tech tools, resource allocation", Education Dive explains how Superintendent Phillip Martell is transforming the Connellesville School District with technology and innovation. SMALLab plays a key role in the initiative that is driving student and educator success.
Superintendent Martell explains the reaction to SMALLab saying, “The kids enjoyed it. They’re having fun... Traditional classrooms are gone, and for those continuing to fight that…sometimes, in public education we have to think outside of the box. That keeps students invigorated and involved. And in my mind, it brings equity and a level playing field for your high-achievers and low-achievers.”
