Abstract

Myron B. Thompson Academy's redesigned online/blended middle school program uses teacher-created interdisciplinary curriculum. Included are collaborative projects that engage students, foster critical thinking and increase student achievement. Students across the Hawaiian Islands work together using Google Apps and advanced tech tools to conduct group research, solve problems, and create joint presentations. The Curriculum Director and a teacher will share the design process and student achievement data.
