Anne Kreamer at the Harvard Business School discusses the rise of Coworking spaces as integral to the 21st century workforce. Benjamin Dyett, one of Grind's three founders, describes the new workforce full of people who "network endlessly and collaborate constantly. They choose when and how they do what they do, on their own terms. They don't want job security, they want career fluidity."
These spaces represent a cultural shift that focuses on collaborative networks, built-in resources, a dynamic ecosystem and innovation.
At ReBrand Teaching we would like to reexamine the physical space of learning communities. We recognize although our learning spaces have changed significantly in the last 100 years we need a new push towards innovative thinking and practice.
We want to hear from you! Do you know of a school using a co-working model as a learning community? Are you an architect willing to help us actualize co-working spaces within schools? Leave a comment and join the conversation. We will be sure to get back to you in order to help us with our research.
