Why Create Collaborative Learning Spaces

  • Education environment hasn't changed, yet "real world" has
  • "Cells & Bells" environment prepares for 1950's jobs
  • Move from "teacher-centered" to "student-centered"
  • What does your classroom space say to your students?

How Do you Find the Space?

  • Consider unused/misused space around your campus
  • Storage closets, hallways, outdoor spaces
  • Clean out ~ Clear out ~ Remake your space!
  • What materials do you already have that that can innovate the way you work?
  • You as the teacher do less and have the students create the space and own it.
  • Design a Space contest!
