Continuing the Classrooms for the Future"We are at a point where we must educate our children in what no one knew yesterday, and prepare our schools for what no one knows yet." - Margaret Mead, pioneering anthropologist and Pennsylvanian
History of the Project
Moon Area High School became a “Classrooms for the Future” school in fall 2006, the first year of Governor Ed Rendell’s landmark educational technology initiative. Through this program, the high school’s English, mathematics, science,and social studies classrooms have been outfitted with Promethean interactive whiteboards, LCD projectors, a multimedia teacher presentation laptop and a printer/copier/scanner to enable teachers to effectively integrate technology into the curriculum. Additionally, 26 mobile student laptop labs have been provided for classroom use, providing a 1 to 1 computer-student ratio in most of the identified curricular areas.
Over the course of the Classrooms for the Future grant, Moon Area School District received over $704,000 to transform its high school into a technology-rich learning environment, promoting the application of 21st century skills and preparing students for their future beyond graduation.
