American Trends in School Design

Web Abstract: 
Passantino discusses how demographic changes, new teaching paradigms, the integration of technology, and community collaboration will affect educational facility design in the new millenium. New facility space will be needed to accomodate a growing student population. Classroom design will change to allow increased interaction in the classroom, with the teacher serving as a facilitator. The introduction of computer technology in classrooms will require more space per student. Community collaborations will lead to creative plans for shared space.
