genius bar for the classroom


summer is the perfect time to get the Cricut out 
and make some new posters...

with our school going 1:1 with technology, 
I thought it would be a great idea to set up a Genius Bar
in the classroom...
I may also call it the Collaboration Station
where students can get together with their laptops and
collaborate.  I also purchased some large laminated
whiteboard poster boards to line the Genius Bar
area with...how cool will it be for the kids 
to jot down notes as they work? 



I pinned this classroom HERE 
"How About Adding a Genius Bar to Your Classroom?" Engage Their Minds, 8/08/13


I realize we don't all have the furniture and resources to 
set up this type of collaborative learning environment. 
However, with some creativity and thrift store/garage sale finds,
it's possible to add a few pieces of furniture to make this happen. 
I plan to give up my favorite rectangular table that houses 
In-Boxes for all of my classes, forms, worksheets, etc.... 

let's see how this goes :)
