Considering New Learning Spaces

2/28/2014 5:00:00 PM

Steelcase recently released the white paper, Technology-Empowered Learning: Six Spatial Insights, which examined ways that technological advances have redefined the classroom and the design of learning environments. The report identified the following six insights to help educators consider spatial responses to tech integration:

■ Person-to-person connections remain essential for successful learning.

■ Technology is supporting richer face-to-face interactions and higher-level cognitive learning.

■ Integrating technology into classrooms mandates flexibility and activity-based spatial planning.

■ Spatial boundaries are loosening.

■ Spaces must be designed to capture and stream information.

■ High-tech and low-tech will coexist.
