Classroom future (Groshell, 2017)
The first article focuses on the classroom of the past and future. It asks why the classrooms look the same as the classes were in the past. The teacher has an instructional position in the class. Learners should listen and remember what the teacher is telling them. Later it changed a little bit through putting learners in groups in the classes. The dream for the writer is that teaching will change in learner-focused classes. Learners are driving their learning. Learners are challenged beyond the classroom walls, exchanging information, discussing, and questioning. Learners should be inspired and not sit still in the classroom.
10 Ways to Create the Classroom of the Future (Lynch, 2017)
The second article gives guidance on how to create the classroom of the future. With practical tips, the writer is advising the teacher. The future classroom is not made in one day, and changes are coming slowly. We, as the teacher, have to start with small steps. That can include using projectors, differentiating in teaching. Allow learners to bring smartphones and to teach them to operate effectively. In the end, the teacher will have a more passive role in the classroom. Data collection and preparation of lessons will be more the main focus of the teacher.
