Tomorrow the big changes ensue!! First and foremost we will be the removing of the white board in the front of the classroom. Currently it is the classroom focus. It is where the teacher stands and delivers information. That is changing. In this new room, it is my vision that there will be no “focal point” as students wil be receiving coaching and support throughout the flexible spaces in the studio. Carpet is being removed from 1/3 of the classroom to accomodate the often messy projects which will take place in the Maker’s Space. Dry erase boards will be installed at floor level for kids to collaborate and share their ideas at a moments notice. To top it off, this week a 40″ computer monitor will be mounted for many purposes: skype, a constant stream of student work, showplace for projects, and more. This is the ground breaking officially! Let the construction begin!
