    What are open learning classes? Maybe we know them as something different in other states. My DD has an open plan class room where they don't have a regular classroom set up but have tables dotted around, some on their own, some to sit 4 kids, they can choose to work at a table or sit on the floor if they wish. Is this what you mean?

    I teach in an open learning space and my son attends school in another opening space. Normally, there are 3/4 teachers in the space plus a teachers aide. Teachers are very accountable as there are many in room. Normally small groups working on similar tasks based on their ability level. There are also targeted groups of students working on strengths or weaknesses. Huge technology basis. It is not for everyone though. What else do you want to know?

    This sounds exactly like my DDs class. It's awesome, my DD loves it and is thriving at school.

    I love teaching this way and so does my
    son in learning this way. As teachers, we bounce ideas off each other and the kids get the best out of all of us. It is also good as some children do not get on with the teacher, there is another teacher they can see for problems. It works well in the schools I have taught it.

    I've been an AP at a school which is entirely open plan, flexible learning in communities.

    It's not for every child - there is no setting that is suitable for every child. But it's fabulous for most.

    It means teachers can differentiate and teach to point of need with support from other teachers and allows for flexibility in terms of groupings too.
