Summary These comments reflect positive staff perceptions of adapting to the new settings in the BEP schools. However, for some other staff the new settings entailed excessive noise, increased student distraction, loss of intimacy and structure, threats to traditional practices, exposure to the gaze and critique of colleagues, and demands for new team and individual skills. In this chapter we identify staff perceptions and practices around challenges and opportunities of these settings in terms of perceived affordances, relational agency among participants, changing spheres of influence for teachers and students, attempts to personalise learning, and activity system dynamics in the new settings (see chapter 3). We characterise both the changes to teaching and learning processes, as well as enablers and constraints to these changes.
