In Sept 2006, Mary Marotta, Leslie Carroll and Nicole Tomaselli were selected along with 24 other learning teams to attend the Microsoft Innovative Teachers' Forum in Redmond.  As Technology Integration Specialists they work across the NH/MA border to collaborate around incorporation of technology into classroom lessons.  They provide teachers with quality professional development opportunities and help their school communities use cutting edge technologies to enhance the learning experience for both teachers and students.  At the forum, all of the innovative teachers were divided into groups and set out to explore the "challenges and changes" corporate and nonprofit organizations must overcome to perserve and be successful.  The attached PhotoStory "movie" is a summary of our Pike Place Market experience.  It was made using a collection of primary sources that my group gathered using a digital camera and digital voice recorder.
