    21st-Century Grade 7-8 Classroom Classroom Project at St. Michael's

    My Students

    We are a class of 28 students in a small school in rural Ontario. Our classroom community is attempting to transform itself into a 21st-Century collaborative learning commons where we (the grade 7 and 8 students) learn to question, discuss and think creatively. We are preparing to enter high school in the next year or two. The development of our inquiry and technology skills now are important to ensure we are confident learners as we will be joining larger post-secondary communities.

    How will this project impact them?

    The classroom itself will be transformed from an information comes from the teacher approach, to a place where students work together and discover. The traditional classroom design encourages independent work and the teacher as the center of the learning. The environment that this project will create will develop team collaborators who question ideas and generate new thinking. The inputs are not consumable. They will remain in the classroom and benefit upcoming classes. The model of a collaborative learning commons by the oldest students in the school will encourage all classrooms to incorporate 21st-Century learning ideas.
