What is a modern learning environment? Modern learning environments support strengths-based teaching and can offer students and teachers flexibility, openness, and access to resources. Working in an open, flexible learning environment where inquiries are shared, interventions devised collaboratively, and reflections based on both self and peer observations, leads to a more robust, continuously improving community of practice.
Creating a modern learning environment Modern learning environments are about giving students maximum flexibility in their learning. Consider how to create teaching and learning and the spaces that align with recent research about how students learn best.
The most important first step when considering learning environments is to start with learning.
- What is your vision for learning?
- What’s your school’s vision for learning?
- What kinds of environments, strategies, teaching processes, and learning activities, do your students need in order to achieve your vision?
