Classrooms as Studios

Clarence Fisher discusses classrooms as studios: “Studios often don’t run on the clock. Studios ebb and flow with a rhythm of their own. People often work intensively for long periods of time and then break before returning to what they were working on before. As I begin working this week much more intensively on podcasting and vlogging with the kids in my class, the classroom as studio has a lot going for it. It is an intense, team – oriented, creative space where people are driven to create high – quality products.”
John Seely Brown has expressed this concept as atelier learning – the notion that we learn best in open environments…where learning is a transparent process, observable by peers, with the occasional critique by “the master”. It’s an inviting learning model.
