Active learning spaces are emerging as powerful tools for modern learning. Such spaces support student collaboration and interaction while igniting creativity, inquiry and exploration.
Published by ISTE, Intel Education and Steelcase Education, the new book Get Active: Reimagining Learning Spaces for Student Success includes comprehensive research, real-world examples, and exercises for educators and administrators to help better prepare today’s students for tomorrow’s world.
Authors Stefanie Hausman, Tod Johnston, and Dale Basye will discuss the concepts, resources, and insights covered in the book, and showcase how schools across the country are discarding the traditional notion of what a “classroom” is and developing a new type of contemporary learning space: one that is more flexible, agile and adaptive and equipped with technology to both personalize and expand conditions for learning.
