Day 2: Flexible Environment
When creating a blended environment, the goal is for students to have freedom of choice in their physical environment, as well as their learning. Creating a flexible environment is one way to help your students feel like they have some choice.
When I first moved my classroom to blended learning, I had tables. The tables allowed for flexibility in seating; however, I found that in order to make my classroom truly blended it had to look and feel like the students weren't at school. I replaced three of my tables with bean bags, couches, and bungee chairs. This allowed for students to not only choose their seats, but their location. It's been great!
