Creating modern and innovative learning environments is top of mind for most educators. But what factors should be addressed while ensuring that the learning environment remains the central focus? Attend this edWebinar, led by Marci Milius, Learning Environment Designer for the Douglas County School District in Colorado, for ideas to improve your students’ learning environment. She will address:

The learning environment matters and schools need options. Join us to hear how to create active, innovative learning spaces for your classroom, school, or district.
