When utilizing the workshop model in Reading, Writing, and Math space can be at a premium. Finding ways to group students and finding places for them to work in partnerships can be difficult. When technology is added to the mix things can get very messy. This class will discuss the impact of classroom design on the workshop model, focusing specifically on the impact of technology. Other topics that will be discussed are: Ipads impact on students eyes and necks, students with ADHD, and Social Emotional Issues. We will look at current brain research, best practice, and examples found in professional books. Restructuring your room (desks vs. tables), reorganizing supplies, looking at color choices for bulletin boards, and techniques to lessen strain on student’s eyes and necks.
