The Minnetonka Story: Using Technology to Personalize Education

TICAL cadre members Bob Blackney (CA) and Marianne Hauser (AR) had the opportunity to visit the Minnetonka Public Schools in Minnesota May 6-8, 2007 as part of a site visit arranged by the National School Boards Association Technology Leadership Network.


Minnetonka Public Schools is a high performing suburban school district, 15 miles west of Minneapolis, Minnesota. In 2002, District voters approved a referendum for technology and instructional equipment providing $45 million over ten years. The district has focused its technology investment on personalizing education to meet each child’s unique needs.


In these narrated presentations, Bob and Marianne each share what they observed and learned during the visit.
