Learning spaces. Virtual spaces. Physical spaces.

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

I'm delivering the opening keynote for Edinburgh University's IT Futures Conference today and was asked to deliver an expanded version of the work I've been doing on the physical spaces of learning, and how they transgress virtual learning spaces, too. The theme of the conference is fascinating, and a conversation I'd like to see happening more regularly in more schools:

It will look at both the staff and student perspective of what the working space is, and is becoming. Where does technology fit in, and how do we work and study in this increasingly mobile world?

The video above is the short, 15 minute version of the main points. More notes and further reading can be found in its related blog post.
