Apple Out-of-the-Box Training Scheduled

Our long-awaited CFF Apple out-of-the-box training is scheduled for January 22 and 23. We will host CFF teachers from Laurel and Sharon City School Districts for the workshop, which will be conducted by Chris Lickteig, an Apple educator.

We can't wait to be properly trained to use our MacBooks, Polyvision Whiteboards, and other equipment so our students can begin benefitting from this equipment!

Also, the "Classrooms for the Future" Year 1 report has been released by evaluators at Penn State. According to PDE's CFF Update:

An independent study of Pennsylvania’s innovative Classrooms for the Future initiative by the Pennsylvania State University has found that the program is improving the quality of high school instruction, resulting in stronger engagement by students and teachers and an intensified focus on critical thinking and problem-solving skills.
