The language classroom: now and the future
Simpson, Adam John (2014) The language classroom: now and the future. Teaching English Associates .
Throughout my language teaching career - and you’ve no doubt encountered the same issue - deciding how to plan activities has been at times amazingly easy, on other occasions unpleasantly difficult. Having a good idea of how we want our classes to unfurl over the course of a series of lessons is great, but, assuming you’re like me, we perhaps don’t always give enough consideration to the physical size and shape of the classroom as we should. While we might instinctively understand that the physical shape and size of our classrooms dictates how the class infrastructure is arranged, we also need to understand that these factors should influence our choice of activities; both now and with some thought towards the future of teaching and learning. Before we get down to the business of moving desks and chairs around, we need to have a clear vision of what the room will look like and whether this will facilitate the activities we want to use.
