Give a round of applause for Littleton, Colorado’s Laura Ingalls Wilder Elementary School!

They have been awarded first place our annual Learning Is Different Here™ multimedia contest! Because of the staff and students’ innovative submission, the school will receive a new SmartLab Studio—congrats!

“This video,” tells Principal Susan Dalton, “represents our students’ innovation and creativity. Winning the SmartLab Studio Lab will enable them to expand and demonstrate authentic opportunities in our school and community.”

“At Wilder, we strive for an innovation mindset,” shares Jessica Tarkanian, Wilder’s current SmartLab Facilitator. “Students are empowered, and facilitators are agile, which ignites a creative, inventive, and self-directed learning environment. Our students accomplish the rest.”

“Wilder’s collaborative culture builds and sustains our SmartLab HQ,” explains Katie Blechle, Wilder’s incoming SmartLab Facilitator. “Winning this contest invigorates and validates our students’ and staff’s efforts, and we’re honored and proud to be part of a community that works together for the greater good.”
