Modern Learning Environments: Hingaia Peninsula School | EDtalks | School library design ideas | Scoop.it
DJ Welsh's insight:

"The studios at Hingaia Peninsula School are shared by three teachers and are composed of a central space which is surrounded by several breakout spaces which act as ‘caves’ and ‘campfires’. A student working centrally in the hub has access to private study space, digital production space (including greenscreen) and group collaboration space. Teachers are able to truly combine classes and arrange learning according to student needs and interest" (from the site)

A new chapter for libraries - FT.com

A new chapter for libraries - FT.com | School library design ideas | Scoop.it

That wonderful, mad ambition to contain all the knowledge in the world has been with us for millennia. The Library of Alexandria in the 3rd century BC became the archetype, an Atlantis of lost learning and a symbol of a city....libraries are seen as remnants of a real public realm; they are spaces that belong to citizens.

DJ Welsh's insight:

The public library is being reinvented in spectacular ways, creating animated spaces for its users.

Sue Osborne's curator insight, October 7, 2013 5:38 PM

This is exactly what all libraries need to be thinking about - how can they remain relevant in a rapidly changing society with changing needs? The key is flexibility, imaginative spaces and a willingness to take the Library out of its own "space" to the users too.
