Abstract

The open area classroom tends toward inducement of a group or 'village' perception of the world. Independent study, in an extreme version, tends to develop individuality, opionion, or 'point of view'. The benefits and dangers of each extreme situation are analyzed to try to make clear the nature of the educational process in any open plan or independent study situation.
