This is a 14 minute video that explains the idea of seven spaces for learning; secret spaces, group spaces, publishing spaces, performing spaces, participation spaces, watching spaces, data spaces, It looks at how digital learning and physical space meet. Some of the designs are quite elaborate, others quite simple.
Matt Locke added data spaces in only recent years to acknowledge the importance of digital learning space. Digital learning environments have no boundaries of space, time or geography. These spaces cater for the individualised and varied learning styles of students. Existing buildings are influencers of future practice, not existing practice. It is important to envisage the future rather than plan spaces for the way learning occurs now.
