When I interviewed for a position as a Technology Integration Coach, one of the questions asked was “What does the Classroom of the Future look like?” My answer: you can’t find the front of the classroom because everywhere becomes the front of the classroom. I talked about whiteboard walls at the new St Olaf College Science Center, the U of MN’s Active Learning Classroom (ALC), and also borrowed ideas from Frank Noschese‘s blogging about whiteboarding (via Casey).
I was so enamored with the idea that I wrote a proposal to install whiteboards on ALL the walls of my room…and I got it! I have tripled my whiteboard real estate — I’m excited to put that space to use.
BTW, I used Photosynth to make the panorama.
