Technology and other recent social changes are affecting the way we learn, and schools of the future will need to adjust to those new ways of learning.
Experts say that, in the future, school rooms will need to have the flexibility to enable pupils and teachers to engage in different types of learning and recreational activities. In other words, rooms will have to be flexible enough to be used in different ways. Folding doors and moveable partitions will allow teachers and students to alter room shapes and sizes according to different circumstances. If there is a talk by a local businessperson or community worker, the “walls” can be removed to create a larger room; if it is time to do some independent or small-group work, the “walls” can be used again to create a quiet working environment.
It is easier to achieve flexibility if all rooms have more or less the same proportions and standard shapes. Also, furniture will be kept to a minimum and it will be moved around daily to suit different activities. The same will happen with equipment: boards will not be placed on walls but they will move around on wheels. And say goodbye to black or white boards: they will be replaced by interactive white boards which can work as a computer screen or as a traditional board.
Some of these changes are already taking place in some schools around the world. What do you think about them? Will they make schools a better place to learn?
