PLG, CEFPI conference and MLE Expo Christchurch - It's all happening!

Following a huge turn out to the last PLG at Jasmax, Registrations (free) are now open for this term's meeting - Thursday 6th June at The National Library, Parnell at 4.30pm. It's a very timely session. The topic of the role of libraries in the context of 21st Century learning environments is always a fascinating one, so it's great to be able to hear from the real experts!

The session is going to be run by Peter Murgatroyd and members of the National Library team. - a tour and talk about the design thinking behind the National Library space- a brief presentation on 21st century libraries - an interactive workshopping of new visions for library as space and place in a 21st century learning environment.
It promises to be a great programme.

If you've enjoyed the PLG you might also be interested in the CEFPI conference too, coming up on 29th-31st May at Sky City- an opportunity to visit some Auckland schools and to engage with many leading national and international experts on pedagogy and space.

And if you are in Christchurch on June 8th, CORE is running a Modern Learning Environment EXPO showcasing, "the architecture, pedagogy, information, ideas and environment to inspire school communities" It's a free event, running from 10-4 at the Airforce Museum in Wigram. There's no registration necessary. Further details can be found here

So it's all happening on the MLE front over the next few weeks. Lots of opportunities to be inspired, join the dialogue and to make some more connections between pedagogy and space.
