Students using paper and post it notes for a group project.
Today’s students intermix low- and high-tech info-mediums whether working with other students or their teachers. Low-tech mediums include paper-based reading and writing, brainstorming and class discussions. High-tech mediums use laptops and digital displays. Flexible design is crucial. It allows students and teachers to move fluidly between interpersonal, analog and digital modes of communication whether working alone, in groups or as a class. Plan for sight lines, space division, light levels, storage adjacencies, visual displays, and power/data access to optimize info-medium dynamics.


In addition to high-tech solutions – laptops, tablets and digital displays; whiteboards, flip charts and other hands-on activities help facilitate creativity, communication and critical thinking.


Equip classrooms with a blend of learning tools – both digital and analog – to stimulate effective and engaged group work.
