Robust Communities for Online Schools

1. In Person Events → Online Social Snacking

Additional online community programming doesn’t work. Instead, you need to embed connection into existing meetings.

2. Physical Built Environment → Digital Built Environment

How the Physical Built Environment affects social interactions
Some portals like Gather.town and Meta seek to recreate in person interaction online

While physical building layouts create mood, social norms, and serendipity, the Digital Built Environment creates creative expression, transparency, and targeted connections.

3. Serendipity in Buildings → Data-Informed Matching

Serendipity champions the magic of chance, while data-informed matching values likelihood to have a meaningful connection.
