The Learning Environment & Inquiry

Keystone, Colorado ~ July 1-3, 2013


In a little less than a month, we will gather together for some collaborative learning! We hope this "flyer" will help you be prepared for your trip and our time together. Our workshop wiki (mentioned below) is a one-stop shop for everything you need to get started, including introductions, resources, etc. So... not wanting to be redundant... we'll just say... we can't wait to see you participating on the wiki soon! ~ Ellen & Leah

Central Idea: PYP informs the design of contemporary learning environments.

Lines of Inquiry:

  • Emerging Pedagogy
  • The 21st Century Learner
  • Contemporary Learning Environments
  • Linking Pedagogy & Space

If you are bringing a device from school, it would help to check that it is configured to access wireless networks outside of your school/district. Internet browsers (Firefox, Explorer, etc.) and essential programs like Adobe Reader ( and Adobe Flash Player ( should have also recently been updated (these are free updates). Don't forget to bring your laptop/iPad/tablet charger, as there will be powerstrips in our workshop room for you to plug into.
