EDsession Program & Schedule

Infusing 21st Century Design Elements into Existing Facilities

  • Date:Wednesday, November 3
  • Time:4:00 PM - 5:00 PM Eastern Standard Time
  • Description: Not every school district can build a completely new school to serve their current 21st Century learners' needs for maximum flexibility and multiple learning styles. In fact, most districts have to leverage whatever funding is available to adapt current facilities to allow for dynamic new spaces that introduce new options for teaching critical collaboration skills and inspiring learning in a myriad of ways. Join us to learn multiple approaches in which various elementary, middle and high schools have worked to infuse new life and flexibility into their existing buildings, plus engage in a dynamic Q&A opportunity to share additional renovation success stories.
