“Minds are like parachutes
They only function when open”
Classroom is a learning place, here we mean that the kids are involved in the world of understanding and are thinking upon what is being taught. But, in this same classroom different students with variety of learning patterns are learning the same concept. May be one is really understanding what is been taught but not the same about rest. The problem is there are some proportion of students who understands by their own, some understand with actually performing while some understand with explanation. Now, explaining with one’s pace is called as a form of personalized learning system and the platform which allows this freedom to learn as per your pace is called as Open classroom system
In some schools today open classroom system is been implemented for example, to teach shapes some students understand with explanation of shape, some with self-drawings and some with cutting various papers in shapes sizes or observing the real world entity of that shape. Learn as per your pace but understand the concept which is to be taught, is sole purpose of open classroom system. Here, stereotypical classrooms are converted into place where kids can stand and move in corners and can work and understand in their own pace no need to follow any typical rule. Result is learning only.
All the online courses are examples of such open classroom system, where kids are learning at homes seating and listening to videos of the speakers whom they like. With online culture there are no fix time bounds. Kids have complete freedom for learning.
With such a system it is so much clear for kids to learn. But the base is that kids should know what they like and their own pace. This maturity is expected attribute for such systems implementation. Else, kids will end up in learning nothing and mere wastage of school hours. Here by, if taken at most care to help kids to know their own style is the important thing. Once aware, then only it can be useful. With such implementation we are actually implementing the sole purpose of education that’s awakening the minds, once they figure out about themselves and their pace the education beings at this point itself. The future is of smart education system with smart classrooms those are open classrooms.
