If you’re in the Auckland area you may well be interested in the Open Learning Spaces Professional Learning Group. The idea is to bring together teachers and leaders who are interested in open/ flexible/ innovative learning environments on a termly basis to investigate the opportunities and challenges that they present.
Each term we’re hosted by a different school with the aim of seeing how different schools are utilizing their new spaces, or how they’ve converted existing ones. We'll be kicking off the year, on Thursday March 22nd, with a visit to Freemans Bay School. They have just completed a brand new learning and teaching block and have another big building project ahead of them later this year.
So if you know teachers and leaders who might be interested please pass the details on. They might already be teaching in a modern learning environment, or just thinking about it. They might be at a school looking at rebuilding or remodeling a part of it. Or they might be in a brand new school. Alternatively, they just might be interested in coming along to find out what the talk is all about. All are welcome. It’s free to come along but if you register here, it just helps with the catering!
