Are we building schools for the future? http://bit.ly/bFlhBc Are we building schools for the future?

Classroom 2.0 Social Network https://www.classroom20.com/ Classroom 2.0 Social Network
This social networking site devoted to those interested in the practical application of computer technology (especially Web 2.0) in the classroom and in their own professional development.
Especially we hope that those who feel they are "beginners" will find this a comfortable place to start being a part of the community dialog and to learn more.
The Science Leadership Academy (SLA) https://scienceleadership.org/ The Science Leadership Academy (SLA) is a new Philadelphia public high school that opened its doors on September 7, 2006.
Developed in partnership with The Franklin Institute and its commitment to inquiry-based science, the SLA will provide a rigorous, college-preparatory curriculum with a focus on science, technology, mathematics and entrepreneurship.
Students at the SLA will learn in a project-based environment where the core values of inquiry, research, collaboration, presentation and reflection are emphasized in all classes.
At the SLA, learning will not be just something that happens from 8:30am to 3:00pm, but a continuous process that expands beyond the four walls of the classroom into every facet of our lives.
