Several months ago I presented on designing innovative learning spaces. As I continue down the path about idea learning conditions, makerspaces, cultures of inquiry, etc. I thought it was time to share this reflection I typed up to spur some summer discussion. "Design an Innovative Learning Space" This was my first time presenting on this topic so to say I was nervous was an understatement. I woke up at 3 am to make sure I was ready to go for the day.

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.

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.
