Take a look Around (cafes, libraries, stores, etc.) and be an observer of spaces and people within those spaces. Pay particular attention to the audience you serve, for example youth:
- How are they interacting in this space?
- How are they using the space?
- How does the space influence their behavior?
What aspects of these spaces would you like to incorporate into your learning space? Think beyond your one classroom - consider your outdoor spaces, in-between spaces (such as hallways and nooks), common spaces, lunch rooms, and so forth..
Feel free to get creative - you’re just at the beginning of this. Share your observations, inspirations, ideas. Review other posts and reply to at least one.
