Model Classrooms Initiative Overview

In select classrooms, we are piloting new teaching and learning strategies that are supported by technology tools and resources.  The objective of the pilot program is to provide teachers with an opportunity to design instruction utilizing innovative, leading edge practices in a technology-rich classroom setting.  There is a strong commitment to providing ongoing professional support as teachers develop new learning activities that meet the needs of all of their students.  Technology provides a great opportunity to guide each student's individual learning path, develop critical skills and habits for future success, and engage students in a way that is well-suited for 21st century learners.
