Today, I changed the blog title to my new venture to celebrate my partnership with Jerry Van Wey as he is the CEO, and I'm the Director of Learning Space Design at our startup, Flex Learning Spaces™.
I have kept many of the older blog posts to remind me of my progress as a technology and learning space specialist in my changing roles from public school teacher (35 years), to educational consultant (5 years), to now. These blogs connect a bit of history for me where I started my first personal website (and blog), Micro Learning Spaces in 2009.
In kicking off this 'new and improved' blog, I'll be promoting our passion for K-12 learning spaces from our new website domain - www.flexlearningspaces.com and will link many of our projects, products, and constructive learning philosophy together here. I will present trends in K-12 learning spaces as our country hopefully moves learning forward to more of an inquiry and project-based curriculum. As I write this post, our current Secretary of Education proposed this week to cut the Education Department's budget by 8.5 billion dollars (about 12%). Yes, my friends, there is work to be done.
But I'll leave educational politics for another day and begin with a little journey through the past with a cut and paste from the Flex Learning Spaces™ page website, called About Us.
