S'More From The AP
Week of Sept. 5, 2014
I bring this up because it reminds me of something that was started about a month ago by some members of my PLN (Professional Learning Network) on Twitter. In an educator chat I was participating in one night, we were talking about some of the different ways we are designing learning spaces, how our ideas have changed over time, and what kind of impact the physical learning environment has on the way our kids learn and the way we teach.
So many great ideas were shared during that chat, and eventually a hashtag was started which is dedicated to the topic of classroom learning spaces. If you want, you can check out what is being posted on that hashtag (and post your own ideas!) by visiting the Twitter link I will share below!
Following this chat, some more members of my PLN from different states had the great idea of starting up "Classroom Cribs", a website where educators can exchange ideas and share how they are designing their learning spaces. There is a Classroom Cribs Challenge posted, and currently over 3,000 educators from around the world have signed up to share their designs and learn from others. They are sharing through blogs, pictures, and video tours of their learning space. With the awesome ideas you guys have I know it would be a gift to others if you would share your own classroom cribs with them! I hope you will join the challenge, which runs until Sept. 14th!
