Redefining the Place To Learn.
Stuebing, Susan; And Others
This report describes 21 educational buildings where innovative use was made of information technology in the educational process. The study was partially funded by the Organisation for Economic Cooperation and Development (OECD) Programme on Educational Building (PEB). Site visits were conducted during spring and autumn 1993 to the 21 schools in 14 countries. Data-collection methods included interviews and document analysis. The report identifies four key indicators of change for the design and use of educational environments: (1) defining the place for learning; (2) building connections; (3) developing new building-use requirements; and (4) transforming support facilities for learning. The move toward a technology-rich learning environment raises concerns about relevance, social behavior, accessibility, professional development, equipment provision, and health and safety issues. A glossary is included. (LMI)
