The irridescent classroom

What should learning spaces look like? What should they feel like? What should they sound like? Your school’s priorities are wrong if hallway use needs to be governed by the fire marshal. There’s a problem if the hallways are simply detention centers or empty spaces. Our clasroom’s are impoverished if a comfortable chair is an impractical dream. Our notions of learning are wrong if when you swing in a circle in the center of your room every view looks much the same. What does it say about our values when we have to stop learning to create half an hour of disconnected physical activity and then treat independent movement as a problem in and of itself? I want my students to live and learn in the schools shared in this video
