Classroom future

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.

  1. Hey Peter,

    I appreciate you linking you this post. I’ve been on a bit of a journey since then, and would love to talk to you about my changes in thinking since the post, which went viral (by my standards) back in 2017. Wouldn’t an interview about the post be interesting for your blog? Anyway, feel free to email me. I enjoyed looking through your site.
