I found myself pondering back to my own days in school and wishing that my teachers had taken a weekend to consider these ideas too! Don't get me wrong, I had great teachers, but we didn't have many opportunities to collaborate or create.
When I arrived home from the conference, I was inspired. How could I make my space more personalized for my students. I used one of the tools shared at the conference to create a plan for the OHE library! Classroom Architect - http://classroom.4teachers.org/ I would love to add some collaborative arrangements, a few soft surfaces (all of mine are hard surfaces), high top surfaces for students to stand if they wish and mobile maker carts to share with the entire building. It was fun to dream!
The #PLS15 was a buzz all weekend as conference participants shared their learning!
