[PDF] How classroom design affects student engagement

[PDF] How classroom design affects student engagement | JUST TOOLS | Scoop.it

New data from ongoing Steelcase Education studies shows that classrooms designed for active learning—i.e., where physical space supports a focus on engaging experiences for students and faculty— have a significant effect on student engagement.

Paper Plate Flying Saucer Craft + 15 Books About Space - Red Ted Art's Blog | JUST TOOLS | Scoop.it
Clearly I am TERRIBLY bias, but I do love the crafts that Pip Squeak brings home from nursery. Recently, they made these adorable Paper Plate Flying saucers – such a wonderfully “classic” craft for kids and the kids adored making them as part of the “space lesson plans”. I love how they made it easy …
FEED THE TEACHER's insight:

This could become a great project. If you make a Class alien mascot and have it travel around the kids' favorite places. You can ask students to doucument this journey and later have a collaborative e-book published.

Ivon Prefontaine's curator insight, July 23, 4:35 PM

The study uses business metrics in evaluating educational innovation. This might be OK for some, however I do not see education as a business and think it is inappropriate to measure it as such. What has happened is that education has devolved into a prefabricated process of inputs and outputs called School using Technique.

What happens when 5th graders run the classroom: A SOLE in action | TED Blog

What happens when 5th graders run the classroom: A SOLE in action | TED Blog | JUST TOOLS | Scoop.it

While textbooks are clearly not obsolete, schools like Lawrence Intermediate School are learning to adapt to the impact the Internet is having on students — and figuring out how to take advantage of what it has to offer. In the end, there is no single right way to get kids engaged in learning, but it’s clear that these kids, at least, who are working in a SOLE environment feel a sense of empowerment, confidence and maturity.

I have one to add. It is not so much an issue but a way of working that functions for me. Students often won't want to put the devices down and listen once they are in their hands. I use the "upside down iPads" command for when I want their attention. They can also turn them upside down to indicate that they have finished a task.
