This discussion, although in the middle of the holidays, attracted a busy timeline with lots of teachers wanting to share their ideas for what makes their classrooms, and also nearby areas like corridors, support good quality learning.
@rlj1981: My classroom is totally covered in work the students have generated. It is their space, made by them, for them. #ukedchat
@fod3: make it ur own – u have 2 spend a lot of time in the room so make it a room that motivates u (aswell as the students) #ukedchat
@Mad_teach: #UKedchat I have separate areas for lit and for num displays. So the kids know for lit help, look left, num help, look right.
@natkin: @danielharvey9 wall for them to put their own questions on – post its or white board #ukedchat
@Nicholls_Dr: #ukedchat Tried an interactive display using QR codes to link to student blogs last term. Worked well. Want to expand to Aurasma next
@SparkyTeaching: Love that quote from @fullonlearning (on display etc): Don’t be afraid to let your classroom scream “”LEARNING!!!”” #ukedchat
@AmyG2191: Blank frames for students to put their work into and others to critique during a ‘gallery’ session.#UKedchat
