Ever think your classroom layout could work better if it were arranged differently? But, you don't want to throw your back out rearranging a dozen or more desks and supply cabinets. 4Teachers.org is offering up a free classroom floor plan app that takes the grunt work out of trying new "looks" for your classroom space. As their site states:For students, the classroom environment is very important. The size of the classroom and interior areas, the colors of the walls, the type of furniture and flooring, the amount of light, and the room arrangement all influence how students learn. Thoughtful arrangement of the indoor and outdoor environments will support your learning goals for students.This tool provides an opportunity for experimentation with the layout of your classroom without any heavy lifting!
The app is very intuitive and includes step-by-step instructions along with basic icons that represent desks, tables, storage, audio/visual equipment and more. You can even change your room size, print your layout, or save your creation to your computer!
