Spaces for Innovation.
Johnson, Homer M.
Team Teaching, v1 n5 Jan 1967
The planning and designing of school buildings has become the job of a highly competent team including patrons, professional educators, and architects each with his special contribution to the process. The patron's role is that of support and commitment to a certain quantity and quality of education. Teachers describe the objectives, the teaching-learning activities and the consequent space and environment to do the job. Architects design and engineer the spaces described by the educators. The whole planning and designing process sets the order for tradition but must presently enhance all that is currently known about providing the maximum options for students and provide spaces that can be effectively and efficiently altered to accommodate the future. Innovations and the rapid adoption of innovations places certain demands upon the modern school facility. Flexibility should become a condition that is essential to the continuous rapid adoption as well as accommodation of the current varied patterns of instruction by which unique individuals can learn.
