Jim David and Sandra Farlow are completely different teachers, both thrust into the classroom of the future. A relatively young teacher, David said he lives for technology. Farlow, on the other hand, calls herself a “digital immigrant,” not having taught on computers since the late 1970s. Nevertheless, this fall the two are spearheading Cleveland Middle School’s Virtual Learning Academy, a technology-driven effort to achieve a “paperless classroom,” principal Jeff Elliott said. The school is beta-testing two Virtual Learning Academy classrooms with 20 students each, 15 fewer pupils than normal, David said. Students selected for the project use the same classroom and keep the same teacher all day long, he said.
