When Students Design Their School: If You Give a Kid a LEGO, He’s Going to Ask For… – Kleinspiration

„I’ve been traveling the country speaking on the power of a student’s voice in his or her own educational experience along with the need for transforming learning spaces in today’s schools. Both topics are very important to me not only for my own passion as an educator, but as a parent of two children. I’ve personally seen the impact a learning space can have on a child’s experience within the classroom. Additionally, I’ve been fortunate to have my children surrounded by caring educators who value the importance listening to students. This week I have the pleasure of speaking at Blackboard World in D.C. 

When I arrived at Blackboard World, I knew the first stop I had to make, the student maker space. Blackboard invited students from all ages to participate in a day of creating their ideal learning environments. The company partnered with the Smithsonian to provide resources and guides to help facilitate the activities. Children would rotate between 5 stations throughout the day – each station lasting roughly thirty minutes.“
