The 21st century classroom needs to look anything but plain while still remaining just plain smart. Because learning is a social phenomenon, students and educators alike work best in interactive learning spaces where a variety of learning styles are welcomed with open arms and open minds.
Students today don’t lack access to technology, so what they really need are spaces that invite collaboration, are flexible to meet their needs, and enable teachers to engage and inspire.
- Spontaneous learning: support students’ natural curiosity with collaborative and private spaces that spark conversation.
- Reconfigure classrooms: as project-based learning becomes more widely used, so do solutions for changing the landscape of a classroom.
- Technology as a tool: gone are the days when monitors were used only for presentations and videos.
