Orchestration refers to designing and conducting 'integrated' learning scenarios, i.e. scenarios that combine individual activities (reading, summarizing,...), team activities (arguing, explaining, problem solving,...) and class-wide activities (lecturing, debriefing,...). The teacher has such a key role to play when conducting these complex scenarios that I dare to describe our technologies as being 'teacher centric'. The management of activities inside and outside the classroom has a physical dimension that I will illustrate with environments that are integrated into everyday artifacts (lamps, tables,...). The learners interact by manipulating physical objects (tangibles) such as tiny shelves to layout a warehouse mock-up. The use of simple paper sheets as input and output of these environments supports an integrated workflow across the different phases of a pedagogical scenario, including the teacher's routines and the students' homework. This talk is not about virtual space, it's about the physicality of classroom interactions.
