Integrating Technology into Bulgarian Classrooms


This year will mark the third consecutive year that Teachers College (TC) partnered with the Institute for International Education (IIE) to host an annual study tour for the Bulgarian Young Leaders Program (BYLP), at the Center for Technology and School Change at Teachers College (CTSC).

This year’s program brought 20 participants to TC in October for a seminar designed to bring the latest advances in classroom technology to Bulgarian teachers working with gifted and high-achieving students.  The program, which is part of the IIE’s larger Educational Leaders Training Program, includes a weeklong mentoring component that pairs Bulgarian teachers with New York City teachers who have implemented interactive and innovative pedagogical methods in the classroom.  The program was led by Dr. Ellen Meier, Senior Lecturer and Director of CTSC.
