In pre studies of “learning spaces”, my “butcher paper response ” to the question “name some learning spaces” was classroom, playground, library and home environment…agghhhhh…how limited does that all sound now!!

When we visit the electronic learning space and the tools it inspires i.e. IWB’s and iPad’s, and applications such as PLN’s and I sit back in my “cockpit ‘and try to gather my understandings in close proximity to me and it seems impossible. Continue reading
