A new classroom on Northampton Community College’s main campus may offer a glimpse into the classroom of the future. The college’s Innovation Lab in the College Center re-imagines the traditional college computer lab with touchscreen laptops for all students and four walls doubling as projection screens and blackboards. Students sit in pods to encourage collaboration and so professors can make sure students are on task. Professors teach from a high-tech pod that, with a swipe on an iPad, allows them to bring what is on their screen onto students’ screens.
