What will school buildings be like in 25 or 50 years? We are living in a period when educational institutions are changing. For example, most of us are familiar with the Harkness table arrangement of secondary teaching and learning, where students sit at a conference table with their instructor, and everyone participates in the discussion. This is dramatically different from the “chalk and talk” lecture format that is still the most common model.
