Design the Learning Space of the Future


How might we design the classroom of the future? In this fun, hands-on workshop, a designer and a learning scientist will guide you on a futuristic journey to explore imaginary classroom environments. Through playful, design thinking activities, we will co-create wild, fantasy-like spatial concepts and classroom setups. Expect to take your future-forward visions and translate them directly to real-world classrooms to drive student engagement, belonging, and social-emotional learning.
