    Tamara Ranger, a reading teacher from Skowhegan and 2016 Maine Teacher of the Year finalist, discusses the connection between technology and the ability to observe students while not in school during a teacher-in-residence discussion at Thomas College in Waterville on Tuesday. The example Ranger used is written on the dry erase board. On a snow day, when most students would likely steer clear of lessons, Ranger said this student used a school-provided laptop to write a short story about a character who died of "carty act a rest," which was intended to be cardiac arrest. Although the phrase was spelled incorrectly, Ranger said this was a case of student who wasn't able to write before and was now working on a snow day to improve.

The example Ranger used is written on the dry erase board. A student was trying to write an essay from home on a laptop computer on a snow day, Ranger explained, and what the student wrote was the clue Ranger needed to identify how the student needed help.
