By Siddharth Subscribe to RSS | July 19th 2012 | Views:

In the coming years, the classrooms are characterized by a feature: innovation. Hand in hand with the technology, students expand their learning opportunities by connecting wifi, digital whiteboards and computers with Internet access. Some of these factors, in fact, are already common in some centers. This will make the so-called interactive classrooms where students gain prominence and power his research work with immediate access to information.

Integrate technology into the classroom

While integrating several sources of latest technology including videoconferencing, interactive gaming, digital whiteboards and tables with wifi and internet access controlled by the students. This is expected to be the classroom of the future, a set of experiences that are tested today in Brussels at the Future Classroom Lab.

This initiative is part of the network European School net, which provides for innovation in learning. Formed by the education ministries of 30 European countries, schools, teachers and researchers, promotes these agents work together to define the characteristics of the classroom of the future.

The purpose of the Future Lab Classroom clearly describes what it seeks "to help visualize how mainstream classrooms and other learning spaces can be rearranged easily to support the exchange of teaching and learning styles." Located in Brussels, this laboratory has been designed as a classroom in which researchers and the teachers themselves and students test different technologies for teaching and learning.

Besides the progress cited, in the near future is also expected that the mobile phone and tablets to gain prominence in the learning mode that work as stimulate mode. If until now its use was restricted in the classroom, especially in the case of cell phones, these devices will become allies with applications specific to improving the skills of students but not the only device that shares space in the classroom with students and teachers. The traditional computer labs, where students spend a specific time to learn how to use computers, have given way to the use of net books in the classroom, the students themselves bring from home.

Interactive classroom and different spaces for learning

- The classroom of the future will be divided into different areas of learning or “learning spaces". Unlike regular classrooms, where all space is allocated to the same end, the expectation is different areas where they carry out different tasks. The goal is for students to participate more in the development of classes, so it arising interactive classrooms.

-In this design, reserve a space for interaction purest, where teachers have the opportunity to use the technology to encourage student participation. Another area is reserved for presentations, with a whiteboard that enables teamwork and an arrangement in which students are divided into tiers to facilitate communication and interaction between them.

- The remaining spaces are maintained for research, creation, exchange and development. The technology is present in all of them for easy access to information via the Internet, group work or design videos. The area to "develop" is devoted to individual research work with various resources such as publications and computers with Internet access.
