21st Century Environments
Schools are no longer “buildings”, but are being transformed into technologically-advanced learning environments. Teachers are adapting to their new role as “orchestrator” of learning in this new innovative environment, seeking to maintain student interest, instill curiosity, demonstrate flexibility and create excitement! The changes in pedagogy have mandated a need for a new and improved learning environment, one where we “make schools catalysts for vibrant engagement”. Per Bob Pearlman’s article on “Desiging New Learning Environments to Support 21st Century Skills”, our classrooms should provide “emphasis to student engagement and voice.” .
So, let’s start creating learning environments that foster motivation, collaboration, flexibility, personalization and inclusion. Welcome to the 21st century!
