We know that Nexus has always been all about innovation and it takes things to the next level with its open classrooms or pods. It understands that all kids learn differently and learn better in stimulating and creative environments. By giving them the freedom to sit and work wherever they want, whether in groups or on their own, kids will be able to take their learning into their own hands.
Worried about kids being noisy and distracted? You could walk into a pod and it would be so quiet that you could hear a pin drop – it all depends on the type of activity the kids are doing! Kids can also choose to work on their own in their choice of desk, on a beanbag or even floor space. They also have their own space to put down their bags and water bottles.
But what we love most about these open classrooms is that it allows kids from different classes to collaborate together, which not only builds their social skills but their confidence as well. Pretty cool stuff, we think!
