Being dumb in the existing educational system is bad enough. Failing to create a new way of learning adapted to contemporary circumstances might be a national disaster.

How to Make Your Classroom a Thinking Space - Suzie Boss

How to Make Your Classroom a Thinking Space - Suzie Boss | immersive media | Scoop.it

Take a moment and imagine a creative work environment. Don't worry about the kind of work going on. Just focus on the space. Close your eyes and picture it. What is that space like? What does it sound like? How are people interacting? Is there movement? Is there evidence of work in progress? Is it tidy, or busy-messy? Can you imagine working there?

This article gives teachers ideas on how to create a thinking space for students. In any KLA the importance of helping the students to be able to concentrate is extremely importand. One of the aims in the Australian Curriculum is to allow students to become "creative, innovative and enterprising when using traditional, contemporary and emerging technologies, and understand how technologies have developed over time."

By creating a thinking space this allows students the freedom to learn and implement the above areas.

This article asks us to rethink what we think to be a work space. They outline that a workspace can come in many different forms and still be productive. By simply moving around an changing the workspace can drastically change the outcomes of student leanring and engagement in more ways than 1.

Khushboo Singh's comment, July 8, 2013 8:30 AM
As I read through this article, I am also painting an image of workspace in my mind that can potentially foster creativity. A creative workspace should be such that it enables generation of free ideas and provide opportunities for constructive engagement. The thought of garage or workshop setting or think labs come to my mind. As mentioned in the article, classroom space is very much like a workspace with the only difference that here children are learning to develop things as well as understand how things work. One of the key areas that contributes to learning is the physical space itself. There are enough evidences as also pointed out in the article, that small adjustments to the classroom space can create better engagement and connect to the topic. Depending upon the school investment/pocket size, efforts can be made from improving the physical layout, wiring, designing flexible furnitures, lighting to simple improvements like changing wall colour, movable board, displays etc. These changes will not only lead to enriched work environment but also energise children to think through situations and work in collaboration.
