"What do you like about the library?"
"What comes to mind when you think of the library?"
"How do you feel when you walk into the library?"
"What would you change about the library and why?"
"What things do you need to help you to learn?"
"We will have 6 different sections in the library. What would you like to put in each section?"
Anyone have experience putting a teleporter into your Learning Commons? Where can I get one and how much is it going to set me back? It turns out our students really want one. Another idea that came up repeatedly was bringing more of the outdoors into the indoors. I can't wait to see how the kids incorporate that into their design. As you can see the answers ran the gamut, some were a tad on the wild or silly side while others were really very thoughtful.
Next step: I have gone through all the responses each class got and put them together on a Google doc. As we meet this week, students will be going through the answers, grouping items, looking for commonalities and determining what is important for each grade level. Stay tuned!
