• Technology

    The Technology section describes the range of potential technologies within learning spaces and how to plan for successful implementation, adoption, and support. Designed to complement the sections on spaces and services/staffing, this section contains a variety of interactive tools and informational resources that can guide technology planning, implementation, and operations. These apply to a full range of spaces – from simple group study rooms to immersive visualization studios – and contain both strategic advice as well as practical information and tools.

    The section contains information outlining guiding principles for technology, providing an overview of the technology planning process and phases, and offering a collection of resources. It also details the role(s) the technologist must play in the planning process, whom to engage when as part of the process, and tips for success along the way. Finally, it contains an interactive tool to approach all this with full technology lifecycle in mind, balancing the cost and the sustainability of your whole portfolio of technologies deployed.
