Re-designing spaces for learning | Connected Principals

Re-designing spaces for learning | Connected Principals | Learning Environment Design | Scoop.it

My focus is the key importance of spatial awareness in redesigning spaces for learning. I hope the second decade of this century will be marked by an awareness that redesigning spaces will be as important to change processes, as describing the new skills deemed necessary for learning and career creation in the last decade. I will focus on our journey of change as a case study for education redesign.

The End of Education Is the Dawn of Learning

The End of Education Is the Dawn of Learning | Learning Environment Design | Scoop.it

 Professor Stephen Heppell has a simple rule of three for third millennium learning spaces:
1-No more than three walls so that there is never full enclosure and the space is multifaceted rather than just open.
2- No fewer than three points of focus so that the "stand-and-deliver" model gives way to increasingly varied groups learning and presenting together (which by the way requires a radical rethinking of furniture).
? Ability to accommodate three teachers/adults with their children. The old standard size of about 30 students in a box robbed children of so many effective practices; these larger spaces allow for better alternatives.
