Please join the Alliance for Excellent Education in a back-to-school webinar that is part of its Project 24 leadership series. Project 24 is a systemic planning framework around the effective use of technology and digital learning to achieve the goal of “career and college readiness” for all students. This Google Hangout will explore how classroom spaces can be transformed into brain-friendly digital learning environments. As founders of classroomcribs.com, Erin Klein, Benjamin Gilpin, and A. J. Juliani will discuss how the learning environment, including physical spaces, plays a key role in how students learn and how creating a digital environment in such a space can transform the learning process as a whole.
If you are often debating between colors, themes, desk/table set up, and wondering how to design your learning space so it best supports all of your students, this webinar is for you. It will provide information and real school examples to assist in redesigning a classroom into one that considers brain research, gender, and digital impacts on learning. For administrators, this webinar will provide concrete examples of how the learning environment impacts student learning and how a classroom or building makeover may just be what is needed to take student achievement to the next level. Panelists will also address questions submitted by viewers from across the country.
