Instructors are about to get a boost in the classroom as more schools transition to a new model of teaching. Several schools around the state have already started experimenting with programs that promote teacher collaboration. Legislation passed last year will help more schools do the same.
Things are changing in the classroom, from the iPads students use to do their work to the way teachers teach. Johnston High School Biology and Chemistry Teacher Brad Hurst says, “Typically your model of the past, teachers would be working a lot in isolation. This teacher had a great idea, this teacher had a great idea, but they weren’t talking to each other.”
