Fixing Education: Classroom Management 5

Student seating is not a new idea, but here’s an interesting take on extending student interaction beyond the classroom and into the lunch room. I meant to share some time ago.

http://drelliesblog.blogspot.com/2011/12/mixing-it-up-how-to-seat-students.html

How might you bring this back into the classroom to get those reluctant students to become active members of the classroom community?  How might it be used after the long winter holidays break?  What are ways to  get students to “mix it up” during other times in the school year–or maybe even during the school day?

What about in post-secondary classes, traditional or online?  Are there any social tools that could be used to get adult learners to mix it up?

Share your ideas here or there or everywhere!
