This work seeks to build a new kind of classroom experience by rethinking how educational content is currently transmitted and consumed at schools. This work presents the results of applying the Short Bridge Method in the education context. We evaluate how this approach contributes to the class composition process by providing tools that support educators and school administrators to plan courses aligned with students’ necessities and learning pace. We present our methodology to identify the work flows and artifacts that impact the class composition activities to support educators and school administrators for personalized learning environments. The results allowed us to understand and map the teacher’s behavior during class preparation and define a set of practices to be incorporate in class composition software.
