WHAT'S STILL HAPPENING TO THE CLASSROOM. A BRIEF REMINDER.
BRUBAKER, CHARLES WILLIAM
THE PAPER DISCUSSES AND CITES EXAMPLES OF INNOVATIONS IN EDUCATION AND EDUCATIONAL FACILITIES. FOLDING AND MOVABLE WALLS CAN NOW ACCOMMODATE SMALL, MEDIUM, AND LARGE GROUPS. ATTRACTIVE ECONOMICS CAN BE GAINED BY LARGE GROUP INSTRUCTION. RECENTLY ETV, DIAL ACCESS, OTHER MEDIA, AND COMPUTER-ASSISTED INSTRUCTION HAVE CHALLENGED LARGE GROUP INSTRUCTION. REAR SCREEN PROJECTION NOW FINDS A PLACE IN THE LECTURE ROOM. SPACE FOR INDIVIDUAL LEARNING--THE STUDY CARREL--EXPLORES THE FUTURE POSSIBILITIES OF SCHOOLS WITHOUT CLASSROOMS PROVIDING FOR INDIVIDUAL SCHEDULING, NEW MEDIA, AND A PLACE FOR EACH STUDENT'S QUEST. IN ADDITION, SEVERAL NEW EDUCATIONAL CONCEPTS AND THEIR RELATION TO FACILITIES ARE DESCRIBED, SUCH AS--(1) THE "LOFT SPACE" CONCEPT, (2) TWO-LEVEL CLASSROOMS, (3) TEAM TEACHING, (4) THE "LECTURE CENTER" CONCEPT, (5) THE "COMMUNICATIONS CENTER", AND (6) THE "TUTORIAL SYSTEM" CONCEPT. SEVERAL OF THESE CONCEPTS ARE IN OPERATION AND THE NAMES OF SCHOOLS UTILIZING SUCH FACILITIES ARE INCLUDED. DIAGRAMS AND PLANS ACCOMPANY THE TEXT. (RK)
