Mod 5 Essential Questions

 Reviewing Ewan McIntosh’s Seven Spaces of Learning, what types of spaces are underrepresented in the schools you work with? McIntosh's Seven Spaces of Learning are Secret, Group, Publishing, Performing, Participation, Data, and Watching.  The school I work at does not have a Secret Space because most teachers do not allow the use of technology in their classes.  Secret Spaces includes but is not limited to texting, chatting and emailing.  Group Spaces such as Facebook are used by…
