Make It New: February 25, 2016

Focus: How can we re-imagine school and our place in it?

1. Hitting "restart" (or "revision," "re-imagination," "renew," "realize," etc.): Renewing expectations we need to have in place to make this unit work.

New doc inside that folder: Space

2. Rethinking our school's use of space (you can either write your responses or sketch, take a pic of your sketch, and upload it to your doc):
  • What do other schools look like? 
  • What kinds of learning do their physical spaces foster? How?
  • What appeals to you personally? Why?
