This week we have Steve Phelps (@KitledMath_T) a Math teacher at West High School in Salt Lake City, Utah leading the discussion on Classrooms of the Future! This should be an excellent and informative topic for educators to start thinking about during the summer and as they prepare for the beginning of the coming school.
