Perfect working-playing environment?
Since yesterday's post there has been a lot of interest in Jen Macaulay's classroom as a place of playing and learning, comments from both teachers and those working in business and a huge number of views. The classroom has been added to the expanding Classroom Displays group on Flickr, too.
I'm getting the feeling there is a genuine desire for more sharing of classroom environments through video, photo or text, a desire that's always been there for this teacher but which is now made far more possible than ever before thanks to the tools at our disposal.
The question is:
- should it be the role of the teacher whose classroom it is to regularly upload images, video or text about their learning space; or
- is there a role for visiting support staff, teachers and visitors from the education and children's services department to snap as they travel, posting to Flickr with the tag of the school and edubuzz, writing a small description of how the space is used; or
- is there a role for students in documenting their learning space as part of their own learning log?
