How Learners See Themselves

We are part of finding the answers.

All over Allegheny County are active learning spaces – classrooms, libraries, and community spaces that encourage learners’ independence, interaction, and exploration.

These spaces, which house whiteboards, 3-D printers, green screens, computers, and a host of other high- and low-tech tools, are louder, busier, and less structured than traditional learning spaces.

In some cases, the spaces are built specifically for active learning; in most cases, however, the spaces are re-designed and newly outfitted. Educators report learners who are are engaged and enthusiastic, but the question remains: how do learners make sense of these spaces?
