With the help of 21st century technology, Scales elementary students won’t just read about the Hubble space telescope – they’ll chart its path across space!
At most schools, learning stops at the end of a textbook — at Tempe Elementary’s newest school, it’s just the beginning
n August 2008, a new school is coming to Tempe – a school that takes learning far beyond traditional teaching methods and into the reality of our technologydriven 21st century. Envision a school where students learn through relevant, hands-on activities. Instead of just reading about Mars they can take a virtual trip there. Students won’t just wonder what life is like in China – they’ll e-mail Chinese students and ask them. Envision a classroom where the answers to a student’s toughest questions are always just a few mouse clicks away. If an answer cannot be found in the textbook, the teacher will challenge his students to see who can find the answer first on their laptop computers. Envision a school where critical thinking and the joy of discovery drive learning. Not only will students know the who, what, when, and where of the Civil War, they’ll understand the why, how and what does this have to do with me, too.
