I like the idea behind assisting teachers in creating their own classroom environment. However, the interactive classroom did not appear to function as I could not set up the virtual classroom. Perhaps once corrected, this may be a useful tool for education students looking to experiment how the design of a classroom can increase the productivity within a traditional classroom environment.

This would be useful if teachers were creating a new classroom; however, most classrooms already have computers and furniture already in place. New teachers may find this useful as they create their own classroom environment.

Look for current articles to support technology use in the classroom.

Technical Remarks:

Some of the links are inoperable and should be reviewed/adjusted to keep current. I enjoyed reviewing the websites that do work.

The concept of developing a physical classroom environment that reflects the teachers philosophy is note worthy. However, this is a difficult "stand alone" assignment without any supporting links or information on how room arrangement reflects philosophy.

Technical Remarks:

The link taking you to this assignment goes to an animation that did not work for me. The assignment description could be found by clicking on "class org directions" at the top of the page.
