High Performance Collaborative Learning Spaces

Modern educational experiences combine an in-class, physical component and digitally mediated interactions that take place in a “virtual” world. Often we think of these two realms as distinct and separable, but in reality anytime students are working online they are doing so from a physical context. Although the GUI design remains the same for these virtual spaces, the context in which students experience those cloud-based environment varies depending on the nature of the physical space from which they are accessing it. Consider, for example, students working together on a document in a Google Drive environment. The experience of 3 students working on this document together from their separate homes is different than if they were working together in a single room using a large flat-panel monitor to display their work as they discussed changes, reacted to each other’s non-verbal communication cues, and gestured to elements of the content.
