My intent with this project is to create more of a student-centered classroom by maximizing student spaces, creating more opportunities for student choice, and develop increased engagement in the classroom. Flexible seating creates an active learning environment in which students take ownership of their learning while teachers ease up on the need to have total control of the classroom. It allows for easier collaboration amongst students to aide in making learning experiences more personal. The goal is to create a more learner centered environment where the teacher can move as a facilitator from student-to-student or group-to-group. This 21st Century, flexible seating classroom, will provide opportunities for seating choice options so that students can sit where they will learn more effectively. These seating options will allow for individual spaces should the student need time to work independently, ease of mobility for small groups to meet, student partnerships, and reconfiguration for open floor space for the whole class to meet altogether during our 'family' meetings. My hope is to provide a warm, inviting and comfortable, yet modern and engaging classroom environment that offers student choice. Thank you for considering my students and our classroom.
