21st-century classrooms look vastly different than even ten years ago but a local school district is taking their classroom environments to the next level.
Superintendent of Heyworth Schools Lisa Taylor says they are introducing a small handful of new classroom looks this year. She calls it a flexible learning environment.
Naysayers may call this too over-the-top for the millennial generation but Taylor says today's work environments require collaborative work and teamwork and this is laying the foundation for them to become familiar with that environment.
Taylor believes there is yet to be a district in Illinois that will take all their classrooms to this style. She adds it was important they improve more than just their athletic facilities with the upgrades they are taking on this summer.
