EDsession Program & Schedule

Programming for a Healthy Future: Two School Districts’ Path to Equitable Learning

  • Date:Wednesday, November 3
  • Time:2:30 PM - 3:30 PM Eastern Standard Time
  • Description: This session will explore the distinct spatial solutions two school districts developed for healthy learning environments. Lakeridge Middle School asked how might we support every learning experience to be interactive, creative, and adaptable? Instead of a few specially equipped STEAM rooms, the entire design of the school is centered on paired rooms that support varying group sizes and tools to transform any learning experience. Madrona K-8 asked: how can we center outdoor learning and support variety in collaborative learning? The 2,400 square foot spaces have operable, transparent walls, nooks for small group activities, and direct access to outdoor learning areas. (GBCI Course# 920024411)
