Intelligent cities presentation

This is one of my most cared interests.

About learning spaces in higher education

A presentation about the value of learning space.
It was made at ED-MEDIA 08 and states current research about how the use of learning space affects higher education settings.

Taking the University Fernando Pessoa case, three kinds of learning space are listed:
- traditional classroom or individual learning spaces
- traditional group situations as labs and collective spaces or collaborative learning spaces
- traditional pass by and support places or social learning spaces.
