My thoughts for the future Learning Space of “The Intercultural Space” see the the ideas within the  Teachers Without Borders Initiative of “Bridges to Understanding”, and the 2 Learning Spaces of the E-Space and the Group Space, coming together.

The more I look into these 3 concepts, the more perfectly they fit .

Teachers and students using the E-Space to connect with each other, and in doing so share their cultural understandings, share stories and pictures, work Collaboratively, and share resources, ….all the while developing empathy and acceptance of each other.

The platforms to use are already developed, it is a matter of selecting the right ones and using them properly. If this can be done the connections between places such as Zaatari Camp and the rest of the world can develop…and “The Intercultural Space” comes into being.
