Open the Windows: Design New Spaces for Learning
Johnson, Christopher
Learning & Leading with Technology, v38 n4 p10-15 Dec 2010-Jan 2011
As a technologist, the author is interested in how the digital world is changing the educational landscape. As he began to research effective learning spaces, he discovered that the architecture, design, and school facilities communities are making a great deal of progress in creating better classrooms and school buildings. Unfortunately, many in the educational technology community are unaware of innovations in school design, and, therefore, their voices are missing from these important discussions. This article encourages everyone to become active in an exciting new conversation about how what one knows about emerging technologies can inform the design of new schools and classrooms. It presents some helpful resources to learn more about the importance of appropriate learning space, and offers suggestions for classroom teachers, school leaders and community members how they can help change the school learning environment.
