Classroom of the future – out of the box

One of the things I did today with my new S5/6 (and have done previously with my S3 and S4) is discuss how we can organise the classroom to enhance our learning experience and also improve the way we work together. After all we have to squeeze into a small box contrary to what is best for us as humans with our need for personal space, territoriality as well as having to get up and move elsewhere every 52 minutes (and also cope with raging teenage hormones). I took some notes from the excellent Donald Clark – Plan B and used this as a starter. Some good discussion followed and we will finish next week and decide how we will change the classroom to cater for the problems and improve how we all fit in. See Donald’s full post:
