    Abstract:
    Curatorial note from Digital Pedagogy in the Humanities: This activity, designed for college-level classrooms, asks students (and teachers) to engage in careful observation of spaces where learning happens. Videos such as Stephen Heppell’s “Space, the Final Frontier” and Ewan McIntosh’s “The Seven Spaces” can introduce students to the importance of materiality and design in learning environments, while the activity itself asks students to examine learning activities in a range of different spaces and to consider how spaces, tools, people, texts, and the interactions of all of these elements affect learning. This assignment could be a major class project or unit or could be scaled down as a one or two day activity with a class discussion.
