Drivers for change in the classroom.
The classroom is being reinvented to support new pedagogies that deeply involve students in the learning process. Teachers and pedagogies vary, so classes might employ lecture mode, group discussion, individual work – from one class to the next, or even during the same class period.
Flexibility in furniture, technology, and space simplifies transitions between different modes, classes, and teaching styles. When a classroom supports lectures, group discussions, and team project work, it not only supports new pedagogies, it also makes better use of real estate, furniture, and technology.
