"This fundamental shift away from the collective grid heralds a fundamental transformation in the perception of space in the twenty-first century...Unlike the standardized road maps of the past, highly individualized maps covering specific interests sit side-by-side in a digital universe where every fear and every pleasure has its map...These new maps index a physical world in ever greater detail at the same time as they are constantly adaptable, receptive to collective and individual needs and fantasies about that world."
Could we consider ways in which maps of Thomas Tallis School could reflect this shift in perceptions as a consequence of increased access to new technologies? Might this also be a useful metaphor for thinking about how learning is changing? What might these maps be like and how would they be constructed?
