  • Center for Special Services Launches "Active Learning" Classrooms at Rye Lake, Pocantico, Irvington

    The “active learning classrooms” have an area where children can sit in an easy chair and rest their laptops on a round table in front of them, or take a spot at a table surrounded by tall office stools. Their regular chairs swivel, allowing for students who are restless or need to fidget to do so while in class.

    Pedagogy has changed from the traditional set up in which teachers stand in front of students sitting in rows, said Scott Kaufman, Rye Lake Middle/High School principal. The new environment is tailored to foster 21st century skills known as the four Cs – critical thinking, collaboration, communication and creativity.

    “The purpose of an active learning center is that kids don’t sit in rows waiting for the teacher to give them instructions,” the principal said. “They have computers at their fingertips. They have information, access to information, immediately. They are able to manipulate the environment to fit the needs of their learning.”
