Designing a Classroom Where Ithaca Students Can Learn Better and Longer

Designing a Classroom Where Ithaca Students Can Learn Better and Longer | Inspiration for Teachers | Scoop.it
Ithaca City School District is leading the way in redesigning classrooms to align with pedagogical practices and a better understanding of the physical limitations of the traditional classroom. “Contemporary learning spaces” (CLS), such as Dewitt Middle School’s model classroom designed by Derek and Laura Cabrera, include new types of furniture, collaboration-fostering classroom spatial configuration, and hands-on approaches to teaching abstract concepts. ICSD’s Lee Ginenthal, with 38 years of experience in special education, teaches district teachers to utilize the tools of the CLS. Ginenthal explained why the old model of education “just doesn’t cut it anymore” and why he’s been getting calls from educators nation-wide about ICSD’s approach to classroom innovation.
Miao Lan's insight:

More and more educators are willing to believe that an alternative learning environment help children achieve academic success.

All very important.....but how many people master these skills during their first 5 years of teaching (prior to burn out)?

Love this! And I have to agree...it may take many years of just getting through survival in teaching (if the teacher even gets through THAT) to acquire these skills.
