During the summer of 2014, two of Dana Hall’s learning spaces were transformed into state-of-the-art 21st century classrooms. Built to facilitate students and teachers collaborating and connecting in the classroom and around the world, these educational spaces encourage student-centered, media-driven and personalized learning.
The installations include flexible furniture, a custom built multi-media Learning Wall and Idea Paint that allows students to write on walls.
“The Multipurpose room was renovated as a prototype for future Dana Hall classrooms as a way to promote multi-modal strategies for deeper learning,” said Computer Science Department Head and Middle School Educational Technologist Cynthia Guerard. “The resulting space blends a students need to experience her world with her own hands with an opportunity to use the latest technology available in education. Our goal is to cultivate and maximize creative, collaboration and mobility in the classroom.”
