Reid Pepin

Reid is a 9th grader at Burlington High School.  He has attended school in Burlington since kindergarten. Reid likes to cross-country ski, hike, run, play board games, and play games on the computer.  He is involved in the Partnership for Change because he thinks using the digital world in the classroom can be more engaging for a lot of kids.  Technology can be a great way to get away from textbooks by using videos and web sources. How it is used in classrooms can differ greatly. Sometimes it is used very little and other times too much.  Reid thinks it is better to have a balance and that used in the right way technology can be a great way to engage more students in school.
