Résumé: In the last decade there has been increasing interest in building technology-rich active learning classrooms that support the enactment of social constructivist theories. We report on a six-year design-based research involving the evolution of such spaces at a college in Quebec, Canada. In particular, we discuss design principles of the technologies, including student-dedicated interactive whiteboards and cone-shaped tables, and the role they play in supporting the learning, student engagement and opportunities for teacher orchestration.
