If you have been inspired to have a go at changing the layout of your class in time for the start of the new term/academic year, as a result of the slideshow I highlighted in my last post then this tool might be just what you need. Using this tool you can play with your space and the furniture within it, from the comfort of your computer and not have to get all hot bothered moving furniture until your design is just right. http://classroom.4teachers.org/ allows you to do this. You can create a scale model of your room (imperial units only) and once you have arrived at a design you are happy with, save it and print it off. Let me know how you get on and share images of your new design layout and the impact it has.
