Learning space design

If you were given a chance to design a learning space, what would it look like? What would it feel like? What interactions and what learning would take place? The work of Loris Malaguzzi, David Thornburg and the notion of the third teacher have inspired my #youredustory blog post for this week. The environment that learning occurs in plays a pivotal part in setting the scene for learning. Inspired environments that promote a variety of interactions help provide an inspired context for learning. That being said, inspiring environments don’t work without inspiring teaching and inspired learners. At my school, we are working on using an old classroom space as a blueprint for a new building. This space would be a testing ground for new pedagogy, new interactions, new technology and innovative teaching and learning. It would be a continued work in progress, a continued beta that would need constant feedback and planning to evolve. To set the scene for this, I collated a list of research, images, inspiration and brain fodder. The elements that are missing from this are teacher and student input. The #youredustory focus for this week will go some way to providing some more teacher input. I would love to hear your feedback. Click on the image to have a look at the collation.
