Recently, I was asked to work as a long term substitute in a media center. When I walked into the room, I was overwhelmed by the amount of furniture; too many desks and too many chairs. I felt like I had been swallowed by the 18th Century. The first thing I did was to have maintenance remove over 50% of the desks and chairs to achieve open space. Right away, I began to get comments on how different the library looked and how it appeared to be more inviting. Whether virtual or physical, space matters and I will argue the point that it does have a positive impact on learning. So as the school year begin, how will your organize your classroom space to impact learning. Please share a picture of your learning space.
