Built for Today’s Learners: How To Design an Engaging Learning Environment for Millennials


Screen Shot 2014-05-30 at 4.15.46 PMToday’s learners, or Millennials, want to rewrite the rules, and collaborate to solve problems.  They see institutions as irrelevant, but they also want structure and boundaries. This presents an interesting challenge for school leaders as we attempt to provide creative learning environments for today’s students and staff.  In this webinar for the edWeb.net Leadership 3.0 community, high school principal Dwight Carter presented ideas that help transform the learning spaces at your school to better support the way your current students learn.  He shared how a team of district administrators and teachers worked closely with an architect to design a new addition to Gahanna Lincoln High School that addressed Millennials’ learning needs.  Design concepts to be covered included incorporating flexible spaces for collaboration, including natural light to evoke creativity, upgrading the wireless network to enterprise strength, increasing student voice and choice in how they want to demonstrate their learning, and looking at time as a variable to learning.  View the webinar to learn how to design an engaging learning environment for your students.
