[Xmca-l] Re: Research on School Space

Dear Beata,

I have authored or co-authored a few pieces on the relationships between learning and space. My own view, oversimplified perhaps, is that design of school classrooms ought to involve empowering the people who will learn there as opposed to attempting to uncover more generalised 'design principles'. Much of my own work tends to be about universities rather than schools, though the two co-authored pieces are more sector-general since my co-author (Crook) tends to focus on schools.

Hope some of it is of use.

Best wishes,


Best wishes,

Dear Beata, 

although not directly drawing conclusions on how school spaces could be arranged, I have co-authored a couple of papers (one of them here at MCA) where the issue of creativity and space has been a topic in connection to CHAT and in the context of design of learning spaces in science and art museums. Perhaps the literature we review and some of our analyses may be of help. See attachments.

Dear colleagues,

 We (the Polish team) are working on a project: How Can Space (especially school space)  Support Students and Teachers Creativity? How can we design the school classroom, furniture and tools to foster the processes of learning and development?

 We are looking for researchers who have conducted research on this topic in CHAT. I remember Prof. H. Daniels' presentation about school buildings during the last ISCAR Congress in Sydney. However, I can't find any additional information.

 I would be grateful if you could give me some suggestions.

Best regards
Beata Zamorska
