Seamless technology integration in a program designed by and for high school students

I came across a video recently about a program offered at Monument Mountain Regional High School in Great Barrington, MA, a public school where high school students have the option of completing their final year with an independent study program. The participants in the program design their own courses of study, focusing on things that interest them and work collaboratively with their fellow students. One of the things that I find interesting is how seamlessly the students integrate technology into their learning. One notices in the video that technology is always present but never obtrusive or forced into the learning context. We could learn a lot about how to integrate technology into learning from these young people.

There is a Facebook group for the project here.
