Studios as Classrooms?


I was just reading this post on the blog titled, Remote Access, where the author talks about how nice it would be if we could reconfigure classrooms to look and operate more like studios.

I think we do this to some degree w/ our HS lab. We have individual workstations for students that are their own to personalize. The teachers are located around the room at their own personal workstations. Kids are free to talk with other kids, but don't shout across the room. We could do better if we had a larger space and a few large meeting tables where students and teachers could gather in small groups.

Very interesting idea...
