Challenging Traditional Assumptions and Rethinking Learning Spaces.

Web Abstract: 
Reviews traditional concepts of classroom layout and learning, urging consideration of current student demographics and learning theories. Contemporary learning spaces should provide flexibility in seating arrangement, comfort, sensory stimulation, technology support, and decentralization. Examples of effective contemporary learning environments include the studio classroom, information commons, living/learning spaces, and corridor niches. Includes 16 references.
