2014 was the start of something special. That something was #ClassroomCribs. I’m a believer that learning spaces matter. As we jump start 2015, I feel it is critical to talk about where we’ve been and what we’re learning.
This past summer +A.J. Juliani, +Erin Klein and I began working on a new project. AJ is the mastermind behind #ClassroomCribs, and I thoroughly enjoy collaborating with this wonderful group. As we wrap up the 2014 #ClassroomCribsChallenge I feel compelled to go back to the beginning. It was an exciting summer of listening and discussing learning spaces with Warner staff, and educators attending NerdCamp & @EDcampLDR. The excitement to redesign was contagious!
