Dr. Daniel Wilson, Director of Harvard Project Zero and Chair of Harvard’s Learning Environments for Tomorrow Institute, will discuss existing research on the relationships between learning goals, design principles, and spatial settings. He will review trends in contemporary learning skills – such as collaboration, creativity, critical thinking, perspective taking, curiosity – and show examples of educational settings that support such outcomes. These cases illustrate how effective design moves beyond a traditional macro-view of schools as static buildings and toward a micro-view of schools as dynamic settings for learning to emerge. Join Red Thread and our partners to discover innovative k-12 furniture applications in our newly refreshed showroom space!
