3:00pm Neither Here Nor There: The Value of In-between Spaces in School Design
Serena Losonczy, IBI Group show more Description Historically, school designs have focused on primary program spaces such as classrooms, gyms, auditoriums, libraries, labs and cafeterias.

Robin Randall, Legat Architects show more Description According to a USDA food access research report in 2021, 10% of households in the United States were food-insecure and a staggering 5 million children were living in food-insecure households. Children unable to fuel their bodies and minds have been found to have a difficult time focusing on their education and therefore slip farther behind their peers. It is time that we understand how to affect change in educational environments to not leave millions of children at a disadvantage. Educational environments can be utilized as a tool for impactful change to support children and their communities. What if a district was to integrate permaculture with educational opportunities? Both schools located in and outside of resource deserts can benefit from the restorative properties of permaculture in their design and curriculum as these spaces can provide produce to the community, a safe green space, and can bring people together.

Connectivist Theory – Applied Designs for Learning Places/It’s Messy
Lennie Scott-Webber, INSYNC: Education Research + Design; Anat Mor-Avi, Illinois Institute of Technology show more Description “The connectivist view of learning as a network creation process significantly impacts the way learning is designed and developed”. In the Digital Age, educators and designers alike must shift the focus to the emerging ideal ecology that actually permits learning to occur. Authentic learning is messy. It thrives in nebulous, informal places and engaged in chaotic processes. This presentation shares design ideas for generating opportunities to engage the whole person – body, mind and spirit – allowing the individual to begin to thrive. Behavioral cues formed from design solutions connect the ‘networked’ thinking paradigm in this shift wherever learning occurs.
