trends in education
Trends in Education
  • Typical school spaces will change.
  • Instructional materials will continue to evolve.
  • Technology will dominate instructional delivery.
  • Technology will be available from multiple access points.
  • Libraries will need more people space and less collection space.
trends in education1
Trends in Education
  • “Electronic Village”
  • school activities include
    • communication among teachers,
    • communication between teachers and administrators,
    • communication between school and community members,
    • communication between teachers and parents,
    • collaborative learning among students
    • collaborative learning between students and community mentors
four characteristics essential to a successful electronic village
Four characteristics essential to a successful "electronic village"
  • achieving a "critical mass" of users
  • focusing on interactions between people rather than focusing on particular technologies
  • providing applications tailored for each type of user
  • implementing new services on a timely basis, so that community networking becomes a fundamental consideration in the vision and planning of the networking infrastructure

Design for…
  • Growth and program development
  • Continued and future infusion of technology
  • Expanded hours
  • Staff changes and more users
  • Flexible use of space

Focus should be on future learning needs that result from emerging technologies, curricular changes, and new organizational patterns rather than on structural requirements and code compliance.

  • Location should be strategic to:
    • Facilitate ownership by all users
    • Ensure easy access to resources to ensure integration of information services and ICTs into the curriculum
    • Provide easy access to the street for deliveries and for community use

Designing for Safety

Crime Prevention Through Environmental Design

  • http://www.cpted.net
  • Minimal cost – if included during design process
  • Works with school design for safe architecturally-pleasing facility
  • Allows after-hours building use by community
  • Control number of exits for safety and traffic flow
designing for safety1
Designing for Safety

Crime Prevention Through Environment Design

  • Plan unobstructed views of major areas (e.g., parking, front entrance, outside entrance to information center, reading room, conference room)
  • Locate windows out of reach of potential vandals
  • Locate rooms used by community near front and center of building; lock off remainder of building
  • Locate rooms used by community along outer wall of media center; lock off remainder of library
  • Student entrance to library: design multiple routes to this area to avoid congestion.
