"We don't know exactly what the classroom of 20 years' time will look like and what it will need, so it makes sense to focus on agility in design with adaptability to the demands of new technology. Three walls are more than enough for a classroom - teachers and students need to be able to work with and see each other. Teachers in sight of colleagues learn from and with their peers. Sharing improves the quality of teaching as good ideas gain greater currency within a school."
