This discussion-rich session will look at long-held assumptions about classroom design and layout. We will look at teachers' and researchers' findings on what kind of furniture, configurations, and movements are associated with positive outcomes and more engaged students. We will consider everything from room entry procedures and PBL group ergonomics to district purchasing traditions and the shape of custodians' vacuum cleaners. We will sample the innovations of makerspaces, Google offices, and cruise ship designs, then give you the time and two- or three-dimensional space in which to consider your own classroom and whether it could use a makeover.
