Redesigning Learning Spaces
For decades, classrooms have essentially looked the same. Because we know that our learners have changed and what they need to learn has changed, our classroom environments must also change—but how? We will take a look at different styles of learning environments, the “why” behind reimagining what a classroom can look like, how classroom design can foster (or hinder) learning, and share ideas of examples for how to fully engage students in 21st century learning.
Gregory Haulk, Superintendent of Huntington Beach City School District (HBSC), and Kevin Mulligan, President of OnPoint Innovative Learning Environments, will share their best practices from HBSC’s district modernization project, which redesigned classrooms and implemented technology to achieve collaborative learning strategies that support 21st century skills.
