CEA: article on 21st Century Learning spaces (classrooms)
The Canadian Education Association has released a preview article (ahead of the Fall 2016 issue of Education Canada) titled 21st Century Learning, 20th Century Classroom by Zoe Branigan-Pipe co-facilitator in Hamilton, ON.
Selected from the article:
“It’s time we thought about how our physical space, schedules and classroom make-up support or constrain the type of learning taking place.”
“How do we, as a system, begin to rethink school and classroom design in a way that meets the learning needs of all students and that allows for more exploration, more freedom of learning, more opportunity for self-driven inquiry?”
“In this article, I want to share how, despite some systemic barriers, teachers and schools can make small changes to their classroom set-up and routine.”
Read the article to discover how to make your classroom work by allowing for maker spaces, different subjects, quiets spaces, gathering spaces.
