Educators from the Dobbs Ferry, Newburgh and Pine Bush school districts visited the Lakeview Elementary breakthrough classrooms today. From the way teachers use space, to the way they use technology, to the integration of makerspace, the visiting teachers and principals saw firsthand how Lakeview is fostering innovation, creativity, collaboration and the ability to solve complex problems into the education experience.
Mahopac Central School District has four Breakthrough Classrooms in each elementary school, six at the middle school, and five at the high school. Breakthrough classrooms help students learn the way information is presented to them today. The traditional system of education emphasized content because content was hard to get. Now content is easily accessible. Students who can use this content to solve problems, innovate, invent, and the like, will be college and career-ready.
