After careful deliberation the organizing committees of A4LE events have decided that it will be in the best interest of all delegates to postpone upcoming events through May. Our number one priority is to ensure the safety and security of our members and delegates. Given the rapid escalation of the COVID – 19 (“Coronavirus”) and subsequent declarations of emergencies and health crisis concerns from local, state, provincial and federal government officials, we felt the need to take this course of action.
At this time, A4LE staff and volunteers are negotiating to find alternative dates that are suitable for postponement of events. The planning committees have promised stellar events, and we do not want to lose that momentum. We will be seeking a remedy to this that will carry all of the hard work forward, taking all events to fruition at a later date. We will continue to update on the progress.
Monthly Design Shares
Please join the New England Chapter for the first installment of monthly design shares on the second Friday of each month at Noon!
At the A4LE 2012 World Congress on Education, Ron Lamarre of Lavallee Brensinger Architects presented a concept for the Classroom of the Future based on the thesis of Anytime, Anywhere Learning
. Years later, William Gould of ARTiK Art & Architecture presented Shifting the Paradigm: A Vision for Learning in 2035
at the A4LE 2018 LearningScapes Conference. Both concepts consider the power of technology and the role it plays in our current and future learning experiences. Amidst the 2020-21 Covid Pandemic educational planners are taking an active role in redefining the learning environment to consider health and wellness while continuing to elevate educational outcomes.
Join our New England Chapter, in cooperation with the BSA K12 Educational Facilities Committee, as we present ARTiK Art & Architecture's video thesis on Schools of the Future emphasizing Anytime, Anywhere Learning – from Anyone for Everyone.
