(1)Topic #1: Briefly share what your dream teaching or presentation environment would be like, be specific about what such a place would include (beyond just the tech toys).
My dream teaching environment would be an art room with a overhead projector and large windows. The classroom would have the following people come and go through the day: students, teachers, parents, administration, school board members, volunteers, and professional artists. Anyone of those people could look out the class windows and see the school Zen garden with koi pond. Students could be seen in after school clubs in and around the Zen garden. Authors note: I’ve witnessed entire schools of Japanese students participate in afterschool clubs. In contrast, many American middle/high school students go home after school and watch TV.
