As Walden puts it ‘A space is much four walls floor and ceiling. The spacial conditions that should be considered for human well being include colour scheme, heating, lighting and ventilation, accoustics smells and furnishings. All these aspects can significantly influence the sense of well beingand readiness to learn and therefor learning performance. (Walden 2009)
Flexibility is the key. As we move towards personalization we must have space that can and will adapt to the needs of the learning environment, the teacher and the student learning needs.
Space—whether physical or virtual—can have an impact on learning. It can bring people together; it can encourage exploration, collaboration, and discussion. Or, space can carry an unspoken message of silence and disconnectedness. (Diane Orblinger
