The 21ˢᵗ Century Classroom
Getting the most out of your classroom space.
It’s reassuring and not very surprising to know that the driving force behind the 21st Century Classroom isn’t a passing fad, a change of fashion, or boredom with the status quo. Rather, the prime mover behind the composition and layout of a 21st Century Classroom is none other than 21st Century Learning, characterized by collaborative learning.
- Student-centered learning, that empowers the students and makes them active participants in the learning process.
- Based on solving open-ended problems or creating some sort of a “product” which could be anything from a report, a poster, or a video.
The educational benefits of collaborative learning extend beyond academics. Collaborative learning also fosters growth in maturity and confidence in the parts of the learners. It does that by presenting emotional and social challenges to the student. The student doesn’t simply perform a task needed to complete the group project. Rather, s/he will have to explain and defend her/his position and thinking in relation to her/his work to the other students in the group.
