PennLive.com visited Historic Strawberry Mansion and Julia Hatmaker took some incredible photos of our holiday decor. While everyone talks about our ornate ballroom, they particularly like the banquet room with its mural of Fairmount Park. http://www.pennlive.com/life/2017/12/holiday_decorations_eleanor_ro.html
Ethel Allen, at 33rd Street and Lehigh Avenue, has a student body that is almost entirely African American and low-income. The school has a computer science teacher, Amrita Desai, and a 6th-grade teacher, Syreeta Thomas, has emerged as the digital learning evangelist there. They both work to infuse technology, problem-solving and coding into every aspect of the curriculum. All students have access to a Chromebook or iPad. Desai said the coding brings together younger students and older students, as well as those who are proficient readers and those who aren't. When coding, "they can work on the same website and talk the same language," she said.
