March 11

We began filming for the “Structure of the Class” portion of our video. This was where we showed how the modern classroom should look, but doesn’t. Its purpose was to show what the old classroom structure was lacking and how to fix that problem in the most efficient way possible. The group’s job was to make a model of how they thought the new classroom should look, but it wasn’t just making it look cheerful. Each new feature needed to have a purpose and reason for being in the new classroom.

To have the ideas shown in this video actually used in other classrooms would be incredible and would show that the hard work put into each section finally paid off. Each group has used unique ideas that stem from their own experiences- something that can only be done through actually being part of the system.

  1. This is brilliant insight into learning structures and how to create classroom architecture for current collaborative project-based learning needs. Thank you for writing this.

    I wish your comment and all the comments could be printed out in one place so that someone could write a book on the subject of how design impacts learning from students working on a collaborative project. I bet the papers and research you did could be expanded…and images inserted to make for compelling text??? just a thought… ?

    I know I’d love to read it.

    Thanks for writing what you did. I like the way you explain your opinion and the detail you use to illustrate your thinking.
