How Collaborative Classrooms Are Designed

Posted on 7/29/2019 7:00:00 PM by Legrand AV Team

Flipped classroom learning is becoming more common and popular. This style of learning promotes problem solving, communication and collaboration. To achieve this, classrooms are being designed to be more adaptable. These spaces are called collaborative classrooms. Collaborative classroom design promotes collaboration among students in class through activities ranging from peer discussions, debates, experiments, asking questions or problem solving.

Collaborative classroom furniture is designed with the ability to reconfigure the room at any day or time. Typically, the room set up includes conference-sized, round or oblong tables, or moveable desks grouped together. Both options promote collaboration. Each table or grouping also has collaborative tools students can use in class. Common tools include a large-format video display, computers or tablets for collaboration. The groups are connected to a central video display for sharing with the entire room. Plan for flexibility with camera placement, camera choice, display mount adjustability and more to allow for the widest array of possible room configurations.

The International Society for Technology in Education found abundant evidence of improved academic performance when including digital content online. Some examples of the digital online content included: videos, notes, homework, homework solutions and extra links to help students be able to visualize the material.
