Designing Spaces for Learning

Abstract: Before designers start designing spaces they need a brief. The essence of the brief is to design a space that facilitates effective learning BUT what actually is learning? How does the brain do that? How do we become creative? What do we expect when we say to students “Okay let’s think about that!” or “I want you to use your imagination!” What do we expect them to actually do? How does the brain really learn and what is the model of thinking, learning and remembering that we will use to design the spaces we require?  www.MarkTreadwell.com
