Open Learning Spaces PLG - September 5th

Following the huge success of the last PLG at the National Library, the next meeting will be on Thursday September 5th, 4.30pm at Hobsonville Point Primary.

They'll be an opportunity to have a tour of the school, talk about the vision and design thinking behind the new space, as well as to learn how teachers are working collaboratively to teach in their innovative learning environments. There will also be an opportunity to get an update on the forthcoming high school and find out about spatial and pedagogical plans for the new environment.  It promises to be a fascinating session.

Registration is free, and can be found along with further information about the PLG on the site.

More meetings are planned for later on in the year. Term 4 is looking like having a high school focus. 

If you have any questions, feedback or ideas for the PLG, these are very welcome - just email.
