A classroom for the 21st century: where are the best places for learning?

See on Scoop.itK-12 School Libraries

Kim Thomas listens in as experts discuss how different environments can have a positive impact on teaching and learning

Susan Grigsby‘s insight:

This is news? I love the section of this article describing the creation of a school library by using a converted double-decker bus parked on an unused portion of the playground. From the article: The children were consulted about the design and their answers to a question about where they liked to read included "sitting in a tree" or "lying on a bed". None, reported Gorely, said "I like to sit on my chair at a desk and read a book."

Go figure…give the end user a stake in the design of the space and they will use it.
