How to Design Classroom Facilities with Blended Learning in Mind

How to Design Classroom Facilities with Blended Learning in Mind | Distance Learning | Scoop.it
At the Intrinsic Schools' first permanent campus, located in a former lumberyard in Chicago, students and teachers are working in spaces designed to support blended learning and a mix of individualized and group instruction.
Chris Eller's insight:

New schools are built every year in Iowa, but does learning theory impact classroom design? 


An informal survey seems to point to classrooms that mirror 19th century lecture-style teaching and learning rather than 21st Century collaborative, project-based learning.


Educators hoping to bring technology integration into their classroom design will find several examples with  360-degree photos to guide their planning.


Well worth the read.
