Millennials in the Middle—School, That Is!

“We wanted to use technology to teach! That’s our spin on it, rather than teach the students technology.” So says Dr. John Lincoln White, TICAL cadre member and principal of Mulholland Middle School in Van Nuys, California. In this interview, John describes how he embarked upon a multi-year effort to enlist his entire staff in integrating technology to engage today’s “millennial” students in standards-based learning. And it paid off! Since launching the technology effort in 2001, Mulholland has increased 205 API points, and John attributes “a great deal of that to the successful integration of technology throughout the school.”
