Evolution of Classroom Design

The first thing that strikes me when I visit a new school is that the classrooms don’t look a whole lot different from my dad’s one-room school house in 1940s Saskatchewan. (In fact, my dad’s classroom, above, generally looks more vital and lived in.) Not much has changed except the colour of the chalkboard in 200 years.

    This is a big issue – if you want pupils to interact in classrooms you have to show in classrooms. Classrooms don´t make sense when they don´t change. Changes must be possible to see also in the enviroment. To sad they don´t. //Happy to connect – Anne-Marie
