Classrooms That Meet the Needs of Tomorrow’s Leaders
Today’s classroom must be designed to meet the needs of tomorrow’s workforce. Research has repeatedly shown that students entering college and the workforce struggle with collaboration and teamwork. This is due in part to the structure and design of the traditional high school classroom. I would like to create a learning environment that has innovative style for the changing minds that will change our future. The design of the proposed classroom lends itself to collaboration. Collaboration is essential for actively engaging the “tomorrow” student. With flexible tables, students can control their learning environment by adjusting arrangements necessary for projects and discussions. These versatile workspaces can easily be arranged and rearranged to accommodate groups of two or more in multiple configurations. When lecture and note taking are required, the transition is easily accomplished, yet when teamwork and small and large group discussion is assigned, the tables can be easily arranged for any number of collaborative settings.
