Flexible and fun classrooms give students a choice in what kind of learning space works best for them. An engaging classroom helps students to work collaboratively, communicate, and engage in critical thinking. When middle school students have choices where to work, they become more successful and productive. Whether writing an essay, a narrative memoir, reading a novel, discussing literature or participating in a Socratic seminar, students will feel free to move to their most productive space. From sitting the floor, to a chair, to simply standing at a desk, students are able to choose how they want to learn and work, which increases intrinsic motivation. A classroom layout affects learning. Both teachers and students are discovering the benefits and advantages of cooperative, active, and engaged learning. Fun classrooms include spaces that support significant alternatives for engaging the learning space and the students within it. I am a 25+ year veteran teacher and know that the needs of students is ever evolving. With our move to 1:1 in the classroom, I hope to create a space where students can love to learn! By donating to this project, you'll help enable students to look at learning spaces and learning differently.
