The personal learning network for educators

Setting up a room- utilizing limited space- providing accessible materials- allowing contributions that lead to ownership- managing with few resources- displaying work... and more.

How do you do it in your educational environment? Are our ideas global or country specific?

Please add to this slideshow with your photos and ideas so we can share and learn from each other.

Thank you for the news; it really inspired me to change classroom design. A teacher was inspired by these resources to redesign a space for her students. Some point-

1. Each Student is learning and not just listening and developing correct conceptual models of a concept being taught.

2. Teacher makes sure there is energy in the classroom, there is not dull atmosphere, disturbing elements, fights etc.

3. Teacher and student must trust each other; Students must believe in what a teacher is teaching but always verify the things being taught.

4. There is at least a single constructionist activity every week or maybe every day, Students do not need to just learn theory.

5. Students and Teachers should have an open conversation.

I encourage my teachers to provide students the ability to speak to their peers and to the larger class.  We have utilized 'Positive Talk" guidelines to ensure that students are staying on task and are able to report back to the class what they shared and have learned.  This practice began the first day of school and through proper modeling, students have become more competent, in grades 1-8, at discussing academic content materials.

Integration with The Latest Technology in Education Field

It is with certainty that we can say that the future of education is looking very bright. Today the kids are taught so many new innovations that we adults couldn't have imagined learning at school. They are also given exposure to more practical lessons. Integration with the latest technology and the accessibility to global platforms have made the industry take a whole new perspective towards imparting knowledge to students. Though the current generation is much advanced and keep up with the…See More
