Re-Imagining the Spaces in Which We Learn
It's not hard to recognize the typical "classroom." They haven't changed much. And while we can honor all the learning that has taken place in that space, there is more to understand about how spaces can be designed to create environments that serve learners in 2011 and beyond. Today, students have an opportunity to learn within an ever-expanding learning space, one that is filled with opportunities to seek on-demand learning, and learning that is free from the constraints of time, space and place. Join David Jakes as we re-envision the intersection of space and learning, and build a new understanding about how learning institutions can create exciting and transformative spaces that extend learning into different dimensions.
Learning Spaces Suggestions | My list of 29 things to do to get started on creating true learning spaces. This list contains actionable items that can be done tomorrow, require at one week to a month to accomplish, or need a year or later to be actualized.

Questions to consider when considering building learning spaces:
How would you characterize learning spaces in schools today?
Do the characteristics of successful physical spaces inform how successful digital spaces are constructed? Are traits transferable?
What does systemic mean to you?
What are the key components of a multidimensional learning space?
What is the relationship/importance of the interactions between formal and informal learning spaces?
How does the design of the learning space influence the perception of the type of teaching and learning about to take place?
How can/will you promote informal learning within the context of a virtual learning space?
How do we rethink the dimensions of learning? Can, and should, learning be independent of time, space, and place, in K-12 education?
Who are the critical stakeholders that need to be involved in developing a multidimensional learning space?
What is required for an organization to be ready for the development of a multidimensional learning space?
Do you believe that social networking is a skill that schools should help students learn and understand? Are there other forms of networking that might be more appropriate? (academic networking, professional networking)
In a digital learning space, what new roles are required? What roles emerge?
What policies do you have in place to scaffold and support the learning that takes place in these new spaces?
How will you assess what takes place in the learning space?
What solution will you build?
Should students be able to contribute content to the knowledge commons?
Given those core skills, what attributes run horizontally across all core skills? (for example, adaptability or intellectually curiosity)
How can a learning space support direct instruction, individual learning and collaborative learning?
What happens when not everyone is on board?
What happens if multiple teachers use a space?
