Today, I selected my new classroom in a newly remodeled building. Now, I am excited to design the room and order furniture. However, I am struggling to find design ideas for a classroom that uses laptops instead of PCs. I am considering using rolling chairs to move between wall-mounted desks for individual work and round tables in the middle of the room for group work. I also want to create some additional floor space for comfortable reading. However, I am open to create a completely nontraditional environment. I just need to ensure that I am able to provide comfortable whole-class and individual learning spaces.
Here's what I have:
-large rectangular room with three wide windows on one long side and doors at each end of the other side
-SMART Board with mounted arm & speakers
-teacher table with a laptop docking station and docucam
-laptop cart with 1:1 laptops during class with around15 students per period
I am looking for suggestions and/or inspirational photos. Thank you!
