San Diego County District Attorney Summer Stephan joined e3 Civic High School and the Art Institute of California today to announce that a group of e3 Civic High students mentored by the DA’s Office created an innovative mobile phone app designed to inspire youth to make good choices. As part of their participation in the DA’s Youth Advisory Board, students at e3 Civic High School researched and designed the app to address issues faced by young people such as addiction, crime, education and peer pressure.

Flexible learning spaces, enhanced technology, environmentally friendly features, and co-location are all characteristics being incorporated into innovative new school buildings and projects.

"Schools are actually becoming more sophisticated learning environments," said John Dale, a principal and studio leader at the architecture firm Harley Ellis Devereaux, based in Los Angeles. "They're more nuanced and doing a better job at taking into account the different ways in which learning takes place." "Green schools," for example, save energy and money, and often educate students about their methods and provide opportunities for study. New buildings that move away from long hallways with closed classrooms toward more interactive spaces promote collaboration around instruction and learning.

One of the hottest trends in new school construction is co-location, said Sarah Luchs, a program officer at Next Generation Learning Challenges, which often works with schools that are transforming academically—and sometimes architecturally.

Schools are being built on the campuses of technology companies, in libraries, and in conjunction with other educational programs.
