Active learning spaces

Learning with 'e's

Recently I wrote about collaborative learning spaces , and argued that we are entering unfamiliar territory. The boundaries of informal and formal spaces have blurred significantly, as have the boundaries between the real and the virtual.

All of these aspects of learning are active.

Self organised learning spaces

Learners who feel locked into their cubicle space may feel painted into a corner.

More fabulous learning spaces

The space in which a child learns is important. If a school gets it wrong, learning can be constrained or even completely stifled. It didn't lead to very good learning outcomes. It's often the simple things that improve the learning environment, and as Stephen Heppell says, better school toilets = better results.

The first kind of space was highly organised. In these 'class' rooms, our students gathered, seated in rows, facing toward a single part of the space - the front. Next came the second kind of space - rooms where people could face in more than one direction. They were able to create their own projects, learning together with the teacher acting as a facilitator.

Fabulous learning spaces

I have been keenly interested in the design of learning spaces for some time. Moving through from reception into the main school, it was evident to see that open plan, flexible spaces were the key design feature, and personalised learning the norm.
