Spatialosophy™ was created for students and educators alike.
In the fall of 2018, pilots of Project 6×6, a Spatialosophy™ framework and curriculum, will be implemented in classrooms and other designated learning spaces. This blend of research, science and applied practitioner experience offers a wellspring of possibilities for creating dynamic learning communities where students and educators thrive.
The Project 6×6 pilot will include:
- A design guide for teachers that maps out the six components of the Spatialosophy™ framework (setting, practice, alignment, culture, engagement, and social-emotional learning) and best practices for applying each to their learning environment;
- Action-oriented lesson plans from the Spatialosophy™ classroom curriculum designed to: promote inquiry-based and collaborative learning; create a learning community where the full range of different human needs, experiences, values and perspectives are recognized and validated; and, encourage students to utilize their natural (individual) abilities and enhance their understanding of how to integrate knowledge and multiple ways of knowing as they navigate a life of learning and problem-solving, both in and beyond the classroom.
- Spatialosophy™ reflection journals (teacher and student versions);
- Classroom library selections that support the cultivation of social-emotional competencies and promote inclusion;
- Coaching sessions with Spatialosophy™ creator Devan Blackwell, M.A.
Learning spaces should: cultivate social-emotional competencies; promote equity & inclusion; and, spark intellectual engagement. Spatialosophy™ is essential to achieving this.
