Blueprint for Tomorrow: Redesigning Schools for Student-Centered Learning
Paperback - English

The United States has about $2 trillion tied up in aging school facilities. School districts throughout the country spend about $12 billion every year keeping this infrastructure going. Yet almost all of the new money we pour into school facilities reinforces an existing--and obsolete--model of schooling.

In Blueprint for Tomorrow, Prakash Nair--one of the world's leading school designers--explores the hidden messages that our school facilities and classrooms convey and advocates for the "alignment" of the design of places in which we teach and learn with twenty-first-century learning goals.

Blueprint for Tomorrow provides simple, affordable, and versatile ideas for adapting or redesigning school spaces to support student-centered learning. In particular, the author focuses on ways to use current spending to modify existing spaces, and explains which kinds of adaptations offer the biggest return in terms of student learning. The book is organized by area--from classrooms to cafeterias--and is richly illustrated throughout, including "before and after" features, "smart idea" sidebars, and "do now" suggestions for practical first steps. It outlines key principles for designing spaces that support today's learning needs and includes tools to help educators evaluate the educational effectiveness of their own spaces.

Prakash Nair is the first person to whom I turn for inspiration and guidance about the design of powerful learning environments for children and adults. His message is straightforward: the physical environment in which learning occurs should be designed and constructed around powerful theories of learning, rather than requiring that our theories of learning be adapted to fit into obsolete structures. In his work as an architect, and now in this book, he has transformed our ideas about the relationship between learning and physical space. Richard F. Elmore, professor emeritus of educational leadership, Harvard Graduate School of Education

Blueprint for Tomorrow demonstrates why and how school buildings influence pedagogy, curriculum and learning, and provides clear, practical and simple solutions that will enable schools to finally bring teaching and learning into the 21st century. Anne Shaw, founder and director, 21st Century Schools

The quest for great schools begins with Prakash Nair s Blueprint for Tomorrow. From modest 'do now improvements to complete transformations, readers will find the tools needed to rethink and reimagine everything from the playground to the teacher s lounge. A must-read! Bruce Rockstroh, CEO, Educational Resource Center, Inc.
