…a class was student-driven and teacher facilitated, and teachers learned right along side of their students?

…cutting-edge technologies were seamlessly incorporated into student learning and presentation to others?

…meaningful project-based learning was pursued by self-initiating students and guided and monitored by teachers?
…students were committed and accountable for their own intellectual and academic progress?
