New and flexible learning spaces are no longer classrooms that hold 30 students and 1 teacher in a fixed box style, single purpose room. Contemporary learning requires larger spaces and the combination of student groups with more than one teacher. They need to be places that provide space for a wide range of learning styles. From the front door, to the school grounds, to the teaching and learning environment, the aesthetics of learning spaces greatly impacts brain functionality and influences how students emotionally feel connected when they're in school. Join Naomi Harm as she explores how educational leaders and collaborative teams can design and create new learning spaces for the brain-targeted teaching classroom. Naomi will also share various collaboration activities that can be introduced in these new spaces using 1:1 technologies.

I teach 8th grade, and I use the sounds of nature to relax the "tone" so that they can focus. And, the brain friendly temperature zone is SO valuable that educators should consider this when setting their classroom thermostats!
