EDsession: HSW in the Design of Science and Laboratory Environments

Session Code: ES19WA7, 08:00 AM Wed 10/23/19


The dangers that exist within science labs and research facilities are extensive and require special consideration during the design and development phases of construction. Whether it is a new building or the renovation of an existing facility, safety concerns must be established and incorporated into design considerations. This course will discuss safety concerns with the placement of fume hoods, workstation layouts, use of safety stations and equipment and general safety concerns within lab and science facilities.

EDsession: ACES OF SPACE/NextGen Spaces for Students with Elevated ACE Scores

Session Code: ES19WA8, 08:00 AM Wed 10/23/19


An ACE (Adverse Childhood Experience) score is a tally of different types of abuse, neglect and other hallmarks of a rough childhood. Almost HALF the nation’s children have experienced at least one or more serious childhood traumas — which can negatively affect their ability to engage in learning. This presentation first delves into evidenced-based research that explains the physical effects on the brain, statistics, and outcomes of students with an ACE score. The speakers will present examples to the AEC industry to make students feel safe, connected and ready to learn — with technology and innovative design solutions. Then, they’ll discuss how SUSD’s Washington Elementary School — offers all students a safe sense of place in their lesson plans and talk about the positive behavioral impact they are making.

EDsession: Transforming Early Childhood Education

Session Code: ES19WA3, 08:00 AM Wed 10/23/19


What's Different About the Facility? The Dr. Sarah K. Jandrucko Academy for Early Learners promotes literacy and numeracy development at an early age centered around the research that children learn best through active, exploratory experiences. The facility features 16 distinct learning experiences, typically called classrooms, which are categorized into four themed pods: Navigation, Investigation, Exploration and Interaction. Experience the future of early childhood education.

EDsession: Augmented Design: How VR, AR and AI will Change Education

Session Code: ES19WA5, 08:00 AM Wed 10/23/19


AR, VR and AI are poised to substantially shift student engagement and innovation, content delivery and administrative processes in education. The design of the built (and un-built) environment must respond to and advance this revolution. Immersion rooms will be added to the program, while attendance offices and computer labs may be omitted. Mannequins in Health Science labs can be exchanged for virtual patients. Dynamic walls along circulation paths will become passive instructors. Adaptive retrofits will be discussed alongside flexible new construction and remote learning. In addition, incorporating these technologies during visioning and design will set a precedent for innovation.

EDsession: Successful Master Planning for Schools in Historic Buildings

Session Code: ES19WA4, 08:00 AM Wed 10/23/19


Today, many urban schools occupy historic buildings that no longer serve an ever-evolving pedagogy. They are looking to architects to lead them through a Master Planning process that is transformative while still maintaining their unique historic character. Using recent projects in NYC as case studies, this session will lay out a step-by-step Master Planning road map that can be used to address challenges ranging from space constraints to identification of stakeholders and resolution of conflicting goals, creating a plan that is relevant far into the future.

EDsession: Biophilic Design for Learning

Session Code: ES19WA6, 08:00 AM Wed 10/23/19


Connecting people to experiences of nature in the built environment can lower stress and improve cognitive function-- this is biophilic design. This presentation will include the science, elements and case studies. It will highlight the results of a recently completed study of the impacts of biophilic design on learning outcomes and biometric stress measurements among middle school students.

Creating Innovators for the Future of Learning

Session Code: ES19WPLEN, 09:15 AM Wed 10/23/19


Kick off EDspaces with one of the true visionaries in education. Tony Wagner will share his insight on why innovation is today’s most essential real-world skill. When information is ubiquitous and free, and when basic education is available to billions of people worldwide, only one set of skills can ensure this generation's economic future: the capacity for innovation. The skills and dispositions for innovation are equally important for active and informed citizenship. What must parents, teachers, mentors, and employers do to develop the capacities of many more young people to be the innovators that they want to be — and that we need them to become? What do the best schools and colleges do to teach the skills of innovation? In a talk based on his most recent books, Creating Innovators: The Making of Young People Who Will Change the World, and Most Likely to Succeed, Tony Wagner addresses questions vital to the future.

EDbrief: Schools as the New Standard: Reducing Carbon Now

Session Code: EDbrief1, 10:45 AM Wed 10/23/19


Carbon in the atmosphere has been the major environmental topic for years. Your next new school or renovation project can significantly reduce carbon in the air. Why and how explained in this presentation.

EDbrief: Learn. Think. Do – A Simple Formula for Meaningful Engagement

Session Code: EDbrief2, 11:30 AM Wed 10/23/19
