ISTE 2013 – Creating Physical Space that Supports Learning
Little is said about the physical space needed to support digital learning. We will explore the overall learning ecosystem needed to create revolutionary learning.
We want to think not just about physical spaces, but the overall environment that we are working in.
Okay, so this session is starting out as “Discuss with your neighbour X” and then “Discuss with your neighbour Y”
Presenter just asked why doesn’t everyone have a dedicated physical space for digital learning? And if we don’t, why not?
Todd’s note: I am confused, I’m not certain that I agree that there should be a dedicated physical space for digital learning. I believe it should be a blended environment. Okay, confusion eliminated, it’s just taking a little bit to get going.
Back to presenter:
We need to build social spaces. Proponent of virtual schools, but some members of the public are thinking we go to all virtual schools, but that may be too much too.
