Working with a modular design can be difficult and forces you to stretch your creativity in ways you never imagined.
As I designed my modular classroom, I really struggled with how I was going to make the most of my space and how it would be beneficial to the imaginary students.
I made the decision that this would be a space similar to class Communications classroom we have now. A place for students to work on graphic and digital design projects. Unlike a traditional classroom, I thought it would be best to seat students together in pairs of three because I find that interacting with other students during class builds interpersonal and leadership skills.
I split the class into two areas: one for work and the other for casual brainstorming sessions. Comfort to me is a luxury in a classroom and having the opportunity to get up and move to a more comfortable seat during class is well worth the investment.
Another aspect that I want to mention is the fact that I strayed away from the traditional style of having a teachers desk. I thought that nowadays since everything is online, the students would have the control over the two large screens to access the teachers presentations via blackboard or email.
Below are images that show my progression in the designing process of this classroom.
