Earlier this month, the Science Leadership Academy (SLA), a technology and science-based high school in Center City, celebrated the launch of its Center for Excellence in Learning.

The Center is an educational resource designed to showcase the best methods for integrating technology in the classroom.

The Center for Excellence was created in partnership with The Franklin Institute and Dell. As a result, SLA will be the first school in the country to deploy Dell’s Chromebook 11, which will be used by students, teachers and administrators to support SLA’s STEM-based education model. SLA also received more than $620,000 in grant money and education technology from Dell.

“The Dell Chromebook 11 gives our students access to their apps and content from anywhere and enables us to integrate learning into every facet of student lives, whether in the classroom, in a lab or at home,” said Chris Lehmann, founding principal of the Science Leadership Academy in a press release.

In addition, Dell, the Franklin Institute and SLA held a “Think Tank” discussion on January 23 featuring leaders in learning in and outside the classroom. The event focused on innovation happening in today’s education community.
