Noreen Michele Colannino

Ms. Colannino and 17 other science teachers create a study group to explore effective ways to integrate laptop computers and Internet resources across the science curriculum. Investigating content-specific project design in chemistry, physics, biology, ecology, environmental science, and astronomy, the study group designs student projects that require Internet research, spreadsheet manipulation, and the use of science and presentation software. The group also tracks the impact of technology integration on students’ science and mathematics test scores.
