Program Title: Active and Connected Learning Experiences- A Baseline For Change

Description: This educational program will help designers and architects have a better understanding of Active
and Connected Learning Experiences. As k-12 School Districts, Colleges and Universities embrace and adapt to
the modern learning environment, we will look at the baselines and social implication of the change. The content
assists architects and designers to communicate effectively with school personnel about learning concepts,
learning modalities and the engagement space. An examination of the modern learner will highlight the impact
technology has on cognitive learning. Attendees will be challenged to recognize how students learn and how
student centered pedagogy has positive and measurable social impacts to better prepare students for life after
formal education. Looking at the dynamics of active learning, attendees will see the relationship the environment
and active learning techniques have on overall student engagement. This course will also identify helpful
concepts that aid in the design of the educational space to achieve positive measurable student outcomes.
