"The students we share our classrooms with don't know life without constant connectivity, wi-fi, and a global audience. Outside the windows of our classroom is a dynamic, fast-paced, and ever-changing world full of choices. How can we expect our students to solve problems and make choices independently if we constantly solve their problems and make their choices for them? Our classroom environments should be conducive to open collaboration, communication, creativity, and critical thinking. This simply cannot be done when kids are sitting in rows of desks all day. "
- Kayla Delzer's article on student-centered classroom designs
I am excited to be using flexible seating and brain-based design this year. When students come into our classroom, they will choose a seat that will fit their individual needs. Students may move throughout the day depending on activities they choose. We'll be collaborating, communicating, creating, thinking critically, and solving problems! We'll be engaged and independent!
