Great Classrooms

Clarence Fisher, Nov 10, 2008
Commentary by Stephen Downes

Clarence Fisher asks what would constitute great classrooms. Here's what his students are replying:
-- Fun - many of the kids mention that a great classroom would be one where learning is fun.
-- Leave - A few students mentioned that they would like more field trips and opportunities to visit people at their workplaces
-- Reality - Real experiences. A number of the kids talked about a classroom being a place to engage with reality instead of practicing for it.
The second and third are elements I have touched on repeatedly. But I should perhaps add more of the first in my thinking.
