Abstract

This paper introduces the concept of equitable pedagogical spaces and discusses the potential educational gains that may result from the creation of physical learning environments that are designed to facilitate equity of instruction. Incorporating Monahan's concept of 'built pedagogy', and informed by work in constructivist educational theory by Dewey, Gardiner, Vygotsky, Friere and Bruner, the paper explores the potential for 'space' to play a significant role in supporting the authentic personalisation of student learning in schools.
