I have frequently ranted about how little I like desks. In an effort to improve the quality of my learning space and the level of my organization.
I have a large, heavy, old desk. It takes up a whole corner if the classroom. I started thinking, what is the purpose of this piece of furniture? For my desk, the answer was a bit disgusting, I put junk on it. I never work there, I don’t keep my laptop there, it is essentially a giant mess collector!
So, as I try to imagine my learning space for next year, step 1 is to remove furniture that does not move or is not useful!
Next steps will come, but I as I have continually said that I want a learning space with more flexibility and less desks, its time I lead that charge by example!
