Some of the Key words and TAKE AWAYS which I as a Moderator highlighted from this 2nd Innovative Learning Spaces Summit were that Innovative Learning Spaces concerns:


  • People, with different needs, demands and desires for theire learning
  • From inclusion to personal
  • Transformation and transitional processes in digital and physical spaces
  • Engagement
  • Who do we invite to the table
  • Resiliences
  • Not to end up with old methods in new innovative learning spaces 
  • Extended learning spaces to the society, the use of external learning spaces
  • Think global, act local, globalization 
  • Choose Champions, ambassadors to lead the PARADE
  • To ask the "right " questions
  • Start unconditionally
  • Don't set the barriers yourself
  • Management and leadership at all levels are crucial
  • Capacaty building
  • Social learning spaces
