Powerful Design Patterns for 21st Century School Facilities

Link to recorded Webinar: http://www.sendspace.com/pro/dl/uzbas1

Having renovated or constructed nine new school facilities since its inception in 2000, the nationally acclaimed High Tech High network of schools in San Diego, CA, has put much thought into the kinds of physical environments that best support a project-and inquiry-based approach to teaching and learning. Architect and educator David Stephen is one of the founders of HTH, and served both as the curriculum coordinator for the flagship school, and the Director of Design for six of its buildings. Now consulting nationally with schools and districts on the creation of project-based curricula and school facilities, David has helped to guide the design process for over 20 dynamic and technology-rich school facilities. This webinar will focus on the programmatic underpinnings of High Tech High, and the key spaces and design patterns that have evolved with regard to the creation of its flexible and vibrant learning environments.
