Spaces and Places
Learning Landscapes to Enhance Education
The Reggio Emilia Approach
Logistics, Rationale, and Funding
I have written several articles documenting and explaining the impact "ditching the desks" has had on our learning. I also co-authored a book on designing learning spaces through Corwin Publishing that will be released this May. This publication focuses on the importance on muting colors, adding nature to the classroom, and creating a calming environment that inspires individual learners. I have also contributed my ideas and photographs to several publications including books, journals, articles, and blog posts.
In preparation for financing the trip, I am anticipating a budget of approximately $3500.00. This will include flight, ground transportation, lodging, meals, and additional costs (admissions, etc.). I have been saving money; however, being a mother of two on a single income presents a challenge when saving for such a trip. I would greatly appreciate your consideration to help support a fraction of this opportunity.
