  • Teacher Education Network November Newsletter

    A message from Dennis McElroy:
    We hope you have enjoyed the change in our newsletter! You'll again have two options for viewing our newsletter this month - a PDF or an ePub version. Why ePub? This allows us to add multimedia elements to the newsletter. Rather than having to click on links to access shared videos, the videos are now built into the newsletter itself.
    All you need is your favorite ePub reader to view it. We would love to get your feedback about this or ideas you might have that will continue to enhance the content and your viewing experience. We hope you enjoy!

    Hello and welcome to the Education Leaders PLN. Please read our welcome letter for updates to the PLN and more ways to connect.
  • Announcing an Exciting New Partnership with FLEXspace

    The ISTE Learning Space Network is pleased to announce a new partnership with the Flexible Learning Environments eXchange™ (FLEXspace).

    FLEXspace is an innovative and robust tool that supports a highly-engaged group of experts, decision makers, influencers, and practitioners from higher education, K-12, libraries, museums and industry committed to improving learning space design and implementation. FLEXspace provides a sophisticated suite of features that allows users to document and showcase learning spaces, share resources and best practices, work collaboratively with colleagues and partners, and connect with an ever-expanding worldwide community.

    While currently you’ll see a collection that contains largely Higher Ed classrooms, we are hoping that the Learning Space network can use this space for ideas ranging from simple classroom changes to creating new and innovative learning space.

    FLEXspace membership is free for schools. Visit FLEXspace.org to explore the website resources and user guides, or 'sign in' to the portal to search or contribute learning spaces. We haven’t automated sign ups by K-12 schools yet, so your membership will have to be approved, but it only takes a day or so.

    Created by educators for educators, FLEXspace was launched in 2012 by the State University of New York (SUNY), the California State University system (CSU), CCUMC, the EDUCAUSE Learning Initiative, SCUP, and the founding sponsor-partner Herman Miller™.  Initially, a team of experts united from integration, Architecture, Facilities and Space Management, Faculty, Instructional Design and Academic Technology experts to design a platform and taxonomy that enables FLEXspace users to upload photos, videos, and support materials, and to detail the furnishings, facilities, technology equipment, and learning and assessment strategies being used in a space.

    Today, FLEXspace has over 3000 members from 1300 unique institutions across 45 countries, with a core team of global experts, advisors and an emerging research and evaluation group from industry and academia.

    The current members are primarily higher education institutions. However, this partnership will allow our members to expand the database to K-12 classrooms as well, so we can learn from each other.

    Also, FLEXspace will be at the A4LE LearningScapes conference in Chicago in November, so stop by and say HI if you're there.

    So, sign up for FLEXspace today and let others know about it. Our goal is to surpass the 3000 higher Ed members with a collection of passionate K-12 space designers.
