New Journal looks at
21st century learning spaces

The September/October Journal opens with a farewell, as Roger Eddy, now retired as IASB’s executive director, shared his thoughts on his career in public education in Illinois.

The issue continues with a hello to the next-level trends in 21st-century learning spaces. McHenry SD 15 shared its process for developing makerspaces for “hands-on, minds-on” learning. Spencer Craig, a project manager for Eriksson Engineering Associates, Ltd., brings clarity to the issue of zoning in light of recent court and legislative actions that now define the regulatory framework connecting school districts and local governments. Also, Carrie Matlock of DLA Architects shares the method for facilities development that follows the phrase “form follows learning,” and additional articles include planning for libraries and for students with emotional and behavioral disorders.
