In the Progressive Science Initiative (PSI), students are taking and passing AP science exams at up to 24 times the state rate; 100 teachers are receiving training in physics and chemistry; and, of those, more than 80 will become newly certified in those fields. PSI Methods have been used to create courses in all of high school science and K-12 mathematics (PMI). PSI and PMI use interactive white board and student responder technology, combined with a website for sharing resources (www.njctl.org) to create face-to-face intraschool and virtual interschool PLCs, enabling and empowering teachers. In the future, it is expected that creative educators will apply those same approaches to new content areas; imagination being the only limitation.
