About the event
The educator designs workspaces that support student navigation and student focus on instruction and allow for the celebration of student work. The educator understands that the design of a classroom space engages all learners in a successful, social, kinesthetic, and cooperative environment has positive effects on learning and the community. Educators adjust their classrooms to meet unique learner needs and situations. They design the classroom space with safety, accessibility, learning, and the display of information in mind. In this workshop participants will learn to:
- Develop and understand the physical layout of the classroom that will allow for safe and easy access to materials and work spaces.
- Establish the classroom environment that will explicitly foster and support inclusion, diversity, equity, and cultural competency that includes and exceeds the demographics of the student body.
- Develop classroom design that reduces distractions and makes the most use of available space.
