Following up on a “Future Ready Learning Spaces” conversation at EdCamp DuPage, I want to share a few photos of my classroom. I teach in an old building that is both quirky and classic. Our technology has been modernized over the years, but the design of the classrooms remains pretty traditional.
When I transformed my classroom, I wanted to move from an industrial-era model teacher-centric classroom with desks in rows and students facing forward to a learning space that is student-centered, personalized, and technology friendly.
What I like best about my room is that it is adaptable. We can change it up and move things around to create the space we need. With its flea market style it's neither modern nor progressive, but instead it's a space to hang out, have a snack, and talk about a good book or two.
