I enjoyed Dr. Veletsianos’ views on the future of digital/online learning and the student experience. I would like to contact him to ask him about the actual architectural design of schools. What are his views regarding what the physical structure of a school should look like, how large, small, provisions, etc. I am specifically thinking about a high school. I also wanted to ask him if he knows of anyone who is doing research on this topic. This is my focus of my dissertation and I am conducting preliminary research.
