 I love walking into the lower school build on my campus because the building itself invites interaction. I am thinking that giving students other ways to engage in real life vs. the digital world will help them develop stronger skills that translate into digital citizenship. Also Teachers Guild coach Paula Marra has helped create a learning spaces design deck that may help inform this kind of idea for schools.

I think it is important to build analog versions of online activities. It shows students that the underlying skills regardless of platform (online or offline). It also makes for some better interactions as devices tend to make students beholden to the screen.
