Interesting project looking at learning spaces of the future.
From the website:
‘Spaces for Knowledge Generation’ is a partnership between La Trobe University as lead institution, Charles Sturt University, Apple and Kneeler Design Architects. The context of the learning experience necessarily changes over time, with technological, economic and social developments influencing the types of learning spaces learners and teachers require to achieve their learning outcomes. This $220,000 project will inform, guide and support sustainable development of learning and teaching spaces and practices, maximising flexibility so as to be used by as many disciplines as feasible. The project is based on the philosophy that constructivist approaches to learning, as well as to research and study, should make use of technologies and approaches that students favour, and that learning spaces should therefore be organised to accommodate learner-generated aspects of learning. ‘Spaces for Knowledge Generation’ will provide a model for designing student learning environments that is future-focused and sustainable for the medium term.
