Michael Cohen, aka the Tech Rabbi, and author of Education by Design talks about classroom design. We should design the classroom environment for learning.
Today's sponsor: Empatico. This free tool helps educators around the world connect their students. Empatico uses live video, file sharing, a partner classroom at least 300 miles (or 483 kilometers) away, and specially designed activities. I’ve been collaborating globally since 2006 and have seen the power it has to help children be more accepting of people different from themselves. That is why I’m recommending those teachers of students aged 7-11 sign up for the free site, Empatico. Just go to www.coolcatteacher.com/empatico to learn more.
