  11. 11. The computer lab is a space for human interaction and human development, especially in an educational setting like the St. Ann's after-school program and the Freedom School program. As such, the computer lab operates according to the needs and proclivities of its users, students, and teachers. Incorporating a SMART board which engages the sense of touch makes the use of technology in the classroom much more accessible and interactive; it also empowers students and teachers by placing them before an audience rather than a computer or projector. Substituting a SMART board for a projection screen enhances access to other technologies as presentation means and allows students and teachers to navigate information databases and extract desired results from them as though they were tangible, physical objects rather than numbers or letters in virtual space. As a space for human interaction, the computer lab is also a social space. While the SMART Board acts as a public medium for interaction, the stations (desks) at which students sit are individualized realms of development which permit both individual effort and group effort, depending on the students' or teacher's program for a particular day. Each student has his own station, as well as his own laptop computer for use at that station or at others, again depending on the program and teaching strategy. Mobility is important to program flexibility, and empowers teachers and students by giving them control of their environment. The desks might be arranged to focus attention on the SMART board, they might be coupled or arranged in fours, or they can be pushed to the perimeter of the room to allow space for other activities in the middle. Also, because students can sit on either side of them, the frequency of the task of moving furniture when forming activity groups is reduced. Lastly, it is important that the computer lab be painted with colors that do not distract the students and promote a sense of interior contemplation, as well as a space for discovery and invention. Because the computer lab is a very high space, it is easy to feel overwhelmed and lost inside of it. Painting the wall that faces the gym a crimson red adds warmth to the space and resonates the darker character of the wooden wall that divides the lab from the gym. Because the roof is so high, painting the smaller part of it that slopes over the SMART Board with a color similar to the crimson, but darker - auburn perhaps - creates a corner of warm enclosure that focuses attention on the white wall with the SMART Board. This wall is white in order to accommodate the white SMART Board without framing it in a distracting way. Rather than competing with color on the wall, the attention should be on the SMART board when it is in use. The wooden wall can also be used to hang up student art and could be painted. - written by Bora Mici, CC ‘05
