Interactive Classroom Initiative
It’s not too late to join in our annual Last Cub Standing fundraising appeal! This past weekend at Benefit 2019, Mayfield Rocks!, our parents and guests raised their paddles high to help us transform the final classrooms in Strub Hall into “smart” learning environments.
Updated classrooms help students engage, collaborate and interact
Help us update more Mayfield classrooms with the kind of state-of-the art furnishings and interactive AV technology that enable engaged teaching and learning. We are looking to equip our classrooms with “smart” boards, which are like giant, responsive touchscreens that put graphics and media at the fingertips of teachers and students. And, new wheel-mounted swivel desks will help students to interact and collaborate more easily—and more quickly.
“It’s an exciting time to be an educator with all the information we know about the human brain and how we learn. For our students we can now appreciate the difference an interactive classroom makes in retaining information they learn and literally wiring their brain.”
– Melissa Tighe, Math Department Chair and Director of Innovation
