As a sixth-grade teacher at Park Street School, Robert Dyer is a pioneer in the use of technology in the classroom. It is his belief that students need to be in tune with technology and scientific changes. Striving to prepare his students for the 21st century, Mr. Dyer utilizes grants from the Department of Education. One such grant allowed him to develop a conference telephone system so that his students could talk with famous people around the world. Another grant, from the Talcott Mountain Science Center, allowed his students to be connected to the Regional Student Weather Network. He has been recognized for his ventures in teleconferencing on topics from physics to the workings of Moog Synthesizer.
