What is Classrooms for the Future?


Classrooms for the Future creates environments for deeper cognitive development through inquiry, real and relevant project-based learning, and differentiated instruction. Teachers are facilitators, guides, and co-investigators. Students are producers, apprentices, and co-explorers. The program recognizes and embraces the need for high school reform, enabling teachers to use technology as an effective tool for educating students, while preparing them to enter and successfully compete in the ever-expanding high-tech global marketplace.

The ramblerhilltopcffwiki is a communication tool for those participating in the Classrooms for the Future initiative. The wiki will be used to view a coach calendar of scheduled activities and updates and to share ideas and resources. A wiki, by design, is a document constantly under construction. Each of you have the ability to edit these pages. Please utilize it freely as this data will be helpful at the end of the school year as we evaluate the impact made by the CFF initiative. I encourage you to use the discussion tab, serving as a blog, web log, to post any suggestions, questions, or concerns regarding the project. The subject links to the left contain web resources that are hopefully beneficial when planning technology based lessons. Feel free to post additional resources you are willing to share.
