On Friday, I visited our new media center at the new Barrow Elementary that should be done sometime in July. We are busy packing boxes at our temporary home, and it was very helpful to see the space to consider what to pack and what to leave behind. I can’t wait to see the innovative projects, ideas, conversations, and stories that take place in this new location. One of the key features of the space is its flexibility. Almost every single piece of furniture in the new space moves easily and quickly in order to change the function of the space in a moment’s notice. Students have long asked for cozy places to sit and read, talk, collaborate, etc. and they will finally get to say goodbye to the big, clunky tables and hard wooden chairs. Thinking about where every shelf and table is going to go is a bit intimidating but at least I know that if it doesn’t work, it can quickly be changed. I’ll do a much better tour on the blog when we actually move in, but here are a few pictures of the space in progress.
