Abstract: The ways teachers use their classrooms reflect on different kinds of pedagogy. Classrooms are physical entities that have both fixed and flexible features; that is, there are elements within a room that are movable by the teacher and elements that are fixed. The impacts teachers have over the physical features of the classroom vary according to their personal awareness and sense of control. Lessons (primary and secondary) have been observed and analysed into clusters of activity leading to the creation of distinctive lesson profiles for each teacher. Classroom and teaching variables (e.g. flexibility, density, mobility, and centredness) are identified and analysed. Important relationships exist between these constructs of use of the classroom and illustrate the need for teachers to understand the effects of the classroom design on their practice.
