A text message alert on my phone from a friend alerted me to an episode from Getting Smart (gettingsmart.com) with Tom Vander Ark (Getting Smart) and Randy Fielding (fieldingnair.com) that discusses why learning environments matter.
Full Episode: Learning Environments for the Future (via gettingsmart.com)
This led me to discover the the designsare.com of which Randy is the founder and also co-author of The language of School Design: Design Patterns for 21st Century Learning. This led to the discovery of Blueprint for Tomorrow: Redesigning Schools for Student-Centered Learning by Prakash Nair.
The purpose of this post is to serve as a reminder for me to purchase these books in the near future and also come back here to report on these books.
