8 Things To Look For in Today’s Classroom

A couple of years ago, I wrote a post on “8 Things To Look For in Today’s Classroom”, and it has been something that has helped my own learning, and hopefully others as well.

Sylvia Duckworth, who has been recently putting together a great series of visuals on different articles, made one specifically on the “8 Things” post.  Check it out below.


  1. What a wonderful graphic! I love that both “connected learning” and “time for reflection” are included–too often, the second gets sacrificed at the expense of the first. What you’ve fleshed out here is a truly balanced, optimal setting for learning.

    Thank you for sharing such an easy to follow graphic. I appreciate the 8 components that were included in this graphic, as I believe that some of them get left behind. I think number 4 is so important (opportunities for innovation) and this is something that I feel gets left behind in a standardized assessment driven society. Students really appreciate and enjoy these opportunities, and I think we should continue to find a way to incorporate innovation and creativity in our classrooms. I will be bringing this graphic back to my colleagues to serve as a reminder of what more we could be doing, and also as validation,that what we are already doing is great!
