“Teacher’s gonna show you, how to get an A…” Not anymore Jackson 5!
Today’s classroom is a place where STUDENTS guide the curriculum as kids of all ages are empowered to ask questions, seek information and collaborate with peers. We move from having 1 teacher and 30 students, to an environment where everyone plays the role of both teacher and learner and expands the physical space of the classroom to include colleagues around the world.
