Welcome to Claxton 300 - the Ready2Teach Classroom

This page documents the transformation of a traditional classroom in a 40+ year-old building into a state-of-the-art, collaborative technology classroom.  In addition to total integration of 21st century technology, this eco-friendly classroom features direct demonstrable sustainability benefits, energy efficiency and utility conservation, and sustainable design. 

The classroom was funded in part by grants from the Technology Committee and the Sustainable Campus Fee Committee.
