Innovative Learning Spaces: 12 Takeaway Points

I really enjoyed doing the “Innovative Learning Spaces” speed innovation session at the NAIS Annual Conference yesterday. I had a good turn out for all three 15 minute session.

Here are the 12 Takeway Points I shared:

    1. New construction isn’t necessary
    2. Peripheral computer lab design is the new norm
    3. STEM and STEAM labs are exciting
    4. Larger, changeable learning spaces suit changing pedagogy
    5. Flexible, moving furniture is great, with caveats.
    6. Portable technology is optimal for “horizontal” learning
    7. Fixed technology is preferable for “vertical” learning
    8. Every school should have flyspaces
    9. Interactive environments (LEAP or Smallab or Kinect) are fun
    10. Well-planned and used teleconference rooms are achievable
    11. VLS systems can complement traditional learning spaces, but our core value is person-to-person relationships
    12. Augmented-reality (via iPad or Google Glasses) is close or here
