Did you know? A well-arranged classroom will encourage creativity, collaboration and communication . And since these are three of the key skills today’s students need, designing a classroom environment with space for more learning interactions will increase student success. In a new book from Stanford’s d. School, Make Space , authors advise readers looking to improve their less than ideal facilities, to take small actions, be opportunistic, and make easy changes.
In outcomes-based learning environments, we generally see three elements in play: 1) learning objectives or targets are created from given standards; 2) instruction of some kind is given; and then 3) learning results are assessed. These assessments offer data to inform the revision of further planned instruction. Rinse and repeat. But lost in this clinical sequence are the Habits of Mind (3) that (often predictably) lead to success or failure in the mastery of given standards. In fact, it is not in the standards or assessments, but rather these personal habits where success or failure -- in academic terms -- actually begin.
