A Little History

In 2009, Doug McIntosh started this original website and named it, Micro Learning Spaces. In 2011, he renamed the site Collaborative Learning Spaces, and in 2014 again renamed the site, Groupwerk® as his educational consulting business. During these years leading up to 2019, Doug's passion for creating progressive learning environments fueled the many iterations of content for his free online book,
Learning Environment Design (LED), available free on this website.

Back to 2009. Doug worked for the Educational Technology Department in San Diego Unified School District whose team created the i21 Learning Initiative. The District's five year Initiative (funded through a local bond) provided every classroom, library and lab an interactive whiteboard, sound system, doc cam and presentation station. Every student in the district also had 1:1 access to a laptop or tablet in their classroom(s).

It is during this time that Doug met Jerry Van Wey who was the Lead System Integrator for Logical Choice Technologies, one company awarded a District contract to install the complete AV system into the District's learning spaces.

In 2013, Jerry formed ITG (Integrated Technologies Group), an AV integration company with a focus in the K-12 education market. ITG quickly developed a stellar reputation across California school districts for their AV integration services.
In 2018, Jerry hired Doug to work at ITG. In January 2019, Jerry and Doug formed Flex Learning Spaces™ as a separate company and a furniture dealer for Mooreco/Vanerum and Luxor. See Jerry's and Doug's contact information below.
