Logistics in a 21st Century Classroom


  • I've read about a number of schools that have created learning spaces that are very conducive to collaboration and communication. I'd love to see areas dedicated to experimentation - equipped with webcams; areas dedicated to recording audio and video - with some sound buffers; grouped tables for lessons and break out spaces galore!
  • Would/ could parents attend monthly meetings? Meetings every term? What would be reasonable yet sufficient to create relationships that foster enhanced student achievement in a radically new environment.
  • What will be the balance between 21st century skills and 20th century curriculum? Is it okay to lean toward the here and now?
  • How will KRSS ensure the program supports the necessary technology to make such a technological classroom possible? Bandwidth? Print access?
