“It honestly helped me to be more innovative, creative, and I actually engaged more in the class.
I, as a student, don't care for the old type of classroom with desks and I love the room with its furniture and use of special features.” -Student
“I was able to hook up an iPad and laptop to TV and LCD projectors so that I displayed both a Prezi presentation and a newspaper article.
Using multi-media and different genres makes presentation of material livelier and promotes class discussion.” -Instructor
“The panels allow each group to work efficiently; we all have enough space to cooperate without being left out or being too crowded.”
“Media (connecting laptops, etc.) was much faster, sound is fantastic (as are visuals on screen).
The ability to write on multiple surfaces was also unique and led to some interesting breakout discussions.” -Student
“The glass writing surfaces were used by students a lot: it made the space 'friendlier,' more 'casual,'
CIRCULAR, and that added to sense that everyone has equal stake in that space.” -Instructor
These unique collaborative spaces are dedicated to scheduling academic courses.
They're not available for other academic events or activities. Mahalo!
