As the co-author of The Space: A Guide for Educators and Redesigning Learning Spaces, Dillon is an advocate for student-centered classrooms that makes learning "sticky" for kids through daily opportunities to "discuss, collaborate and analyze" in spaces designed for modern learning.. He also shares insights on how flexible seating is an entry point to changing classrooms and why countries such as Australia and New Zealand have embraced natural light, color, sound and more open spaces to empower kids to take ownership of their learning.
