Cathedrals, Casinos, Colleges and Classrooms: Questions for the Architects of Digital Campuses
McCluskey, Frank; Winter, Melanie
Higher Learning Research Communications, v3 n3 p8-15 Sep 2013
The bricks and mortar classroom has a long and storied history. The digital classroom is so new and different it may be wrong to even call it a "classroom". The authors argue that architecture influences behavior. So in constructing our new digital classrooms we must pay attention to the architecture and what job we want that architecture to do. In thinking about the relation between instructional design and our pedagogical aims we must keep in mind that this new type of "space" may require us to rethink our views of both teaching and learning.
