25 Designing spaces to serve learners... Rethink traditional time structures such as “class time” and “school hours” and “school year” Provide Open Source Access to Intellectual Resources, including code Open schools to the community, both online and off Promote collaboration across cultures, disciplines and generations Rethink Teacher credentialing requirements Conduct a front-end analysis of new designs with a broader network of stakeholders Rethink architectural elements, including modular spaces, pervasive elements, furniture, lighting and 4D displays according to contemporary literacy needs and social uses Go green... Engage the whole community (including young people)! © Kathleen Tyner
