How can we design learning environments that improve student outcomes by reducing the disconnect between pedagogical decision-making and spatial proficiency? Engage in a visual dialogue about how a deep understanding of spatial features and their link to pedagogical decision-making leads to increased educator spatial proficiencies.
The built and natural environments have profound impacts on our behaviors both for better and worse. How do we cultivate a sense of place for better? How might the built and natural environments be made to enhance teaching and learning? How might school buildings and grounds foster a sense of community by reflecting those they serve?
