Editor's Note

We've Made A Few Changes

Welcome to the debut issue of spaces4learning.

Spaces4Learning is the next evolution of two of our most successful and compelling publications: School Planning & Management and College Planning & Management.

The education sector is changing. Technology is driving radical transformations in all aspects of education, from planning and management to teaching and learning. We needed a new publication that would address these changes in the sector, from pre-kindergarten through higher education.

More than just a merger of two publications, Spaces4Learning is expanding the coverage previously offered by CP&M and SP&M, incorporating education technology and spotlighting some of the latest trends in the integration of technology and space design and management, from esports arenas to school makerspaces — all while continuing to focus on the nuts and bolts of design, operation and maintenance of K–12 and higher education facilities.

We’re launching Spaces4Learning as both a brand new print publication and a new website (spaces4learning.com) loaded with original content and a wealth of resources.

Spaces4Learning offers expert tips, in-depth features, exclusive insights, up-to-the-minute news and compelling live and virtual events, webcasts and podcasts, providing you with exciting opportunities to learn and interact with your peers in meaningful ways.

We are grateful for the chance to continue to serve you under our new brand name and will continue to do our best to offer you the tools you need to do your job and serve your community. And we thank you for continuing with us as we enter the next stage of our journey!
