The future classroom is a learning environment which is person- oriented and focuses on the learners’ individual freedom, development and harmonious relationships with the support of ubiquitous technologies. Its design aims mainly to serve and support self-directed learning and socialize learning through the configuration of the classroom instruments and resources; and it also aims to cultivate in learners the skills necessary for the 21st century. The future classroom is a multi-display learning space, with the development of display technology and the configuration and rational use of multi-display devices. This approach may solve problems such as the display of instructional content, the exchange between group learners, and the interaction between the virtual and the real classroom.
