Learning Spaces and School Libraries

This time last year I was involved in a planning day with a large number of schools and their staff, on the matter of  21st Century School Libraries Learning Learning.  There is so much to think about in the design or re-design of such facilities no matter what the budget.

Here is another presentation that piqued my interest, with relevance to school libraries.

‘Impressive new buildings are, on their own, NO GUARANTEE that improved learning will be achieved; although they may be useful in marketing terms, by helping brand an institution’.

“teaching and learning should drive design, rather than vice-versa”

Take a look as there are  some good points to take away for your own deliberations…..
