There is a teacher standing at the podium that must have Just finished introducing the video.
The students are opening up notebooks and it looks like they are about to take notes over the video they are going to be watching.

Explain the purpose of classroom arrangement as it relates to instructional design. A. The arrangement of a classroom can either work for a teacher or work against a teacher, which In the long run means It will make or break the function off classroom.
If a teacher arranges the classroom so that only Alfa the students can see the television at the front of the classroom and they use it on a regular bases then this would be a problem. When a teacher uses a television or projector on regular bases then they need to design their classroom appropriately. If the teacher likes for the children to work on group projects but yet they line the desks up then this will result In a problem, because the students will have to move to get Into their group. On the other hand when a teacher knows that they like to teach classroom runs easily.
