Don't miss Raechel French's session title Innovative Learning Environments & Teacher Change on Monday, March 5 at 11 a.m. in the Hilton Austin Downtown, Room 410. Many schools are trading an identical classroom model for activity-driven spaces and mobile furniture. However, changing space is easier than changing practice. The Innovative Learning Environments and Teacher Change (ILETC) project out of Melbourne, Australia is using research-driven games and activities to help teachers think differently about space, pedagogy, and making the shift. Join Raechel and the panel to experience these activities, reflect on your own practice, and explore the ongoing research findings.
