Abstract:

A leader from two districts supported by their architectural team will present strategies on how to transform small existing spaces into 21st Century learning environments that have a big impact within the school and community. The presentation will spotlight projects and address: how flexible learning environments support Universal Design for Learning, how to develop partnerships with local businesses and community members to support new curriculum, how to fund projects through donations from local businesses and charitable foundations, and why transforming the learning environment is necessary to support "learn by doing" curriculum.
