Re-Focusing in the COVID Classroom - A Conversation with Bonnie's Global Café

Thank you to Bonnie's Global Café for having Lauren Karwoski Magee and me as guests of her café. We had a wonderful time discussing design ideas for COVID-19 environments and beyond.


Lauren Karwoski Magee is a licensed architect and is the Director of Architecture and Environmental Design for Guidecraft. She specializes in interdisciplinary design and leads an international team on the design of environments for young children, toddlers and infants. Lauren is a former educator and elected school board Vice-President with direct experience working with curriculum, facilities and operations in public schools. She has done extensive research into the psychology of places and spaces, specifically in the ways people of all ages engage with the built environment and natural surroundings. With Guidecraft, Lauren applies that experience, along with her expertise in the philosophies of Reggio Emilia, Montessori, Nature-Based education, and other teaching methods, to the holistic design of places for young children. | Skype: | Instagram: @LaurensLearningLab | WeChat: LKMagee | 845.772.3048
