Reflection: Classroom Setup What is Citizen Science? Shallow Dive (1 of 2) - Section 3: EXPLORE: Shallow dive


Attached is a picture of what a typical "digital hub" looks like in my class.  In this setup there is a cluster of students connected to a single laptop.  All students are able to engage with content through headphones connected to a splitter.  The laptop is on top of a plastic crate so that all student can see.  I choose to go with headphones because otherwise students become incredibly distracted.
