The question you have to ask does the physical space relate to the enjoyment of learning? I remember the cool chairs at our public library that Isaiah and I would sit in and enjoy weekly.
Cindy Martin's comment, January 8, 2013 11:07 PM
I loved those chairs too and used them with my children. I think it is not just how the physical space relates to enjoyment, but to traffic flow. Our school is big, the number of students per class is at maximum so the number of students in the library when they come in as a class requires that we think about how they will move through the library, what will cause problems for the little ones and how best to have students able to discover our treasures and sign them out!

Although taylorism still plays in a big role in how companies run their organizations, this article shows different. It shows that taylorism may not always be the best solution.

Sandy and media literacy « NeverEndingSearch | LibraryLearningCommons | Scoop.it

. . . one of the things that’s now becoming clear is the major role that social media played during and after the storm. Sites like Twitter and Facebook were, for some, incredibly useful tools. They were ways to keep up with friends and relatives and neighbors in a stressful time, but they were also vehicles for spreading false information and, sometimes this was done deliberately.
