[ #cefpi #tep10 ] The Seven Spaces of Technology in School Environments

The Seven Spaces of Technology in School Environments from Ewan McIntosh on Vimeo.

Matt Locke originally came up with the concept of the Six Spaces of Social Media. I added a seventh earlier this year, Data Spaces, and have played around with how education could harness these spaces, and the various transgressions between them, for learning.

This short presentation tackles the potential of adjusting our physical school environments to harness technology even better. What happens when we map technological spaces to physical ones?

Really interesting stuff Ewan. I wonder how many of the recent new builds have put this much thought into the interior learning spaces and how many have created good old Victorian boxes? As our school heads into a potential new build it gives me some good ideas for discussion over the coming months.

Well, Dan, if you need a hand let me know. I'll be developing this area of thinking a LOT over the next four months in preparation for a book, so I'll be interested in stories, especially at those early planning stages. What are the "yes buts" you will come up against, I wonder? Do let me know if you have the stories, or if you want a hand bringing 'em around ;-)

Do you worry that your school or district could better harness its people, digital technology or physical space? Do you want some actionable inspiration, a mentor for a learning journey with your staff?

In a keynote or masterclass we can give them concrete ideas based on experience, enthusiasm fired by a vision of what can be, and backup before and after to make it happen for them.
