This paper reports on work-in-progress related to the creation of smarter spaces for learning in response to real world needs in urban environments. As such, this work addresses opportunities for reconfiguring learning in the city in order to engage with the complex and ever increasing challenges associated with the rapid growth of cities. Using an informal approach, featuring individual and group discussions, people across the city identify what matters to them about the learning, people, and technology dimensions of smart cities. Content gathered from informal discussions is analyzed using content analysis. This work-in-progress is significant in that it contributes to the discourse space on the learning dimension of smart cites; sheds light on the innovating of learning approaches and techniques to accommodate opportunities for making/incubating a difference in the city; and confirms the need for, and interest in, making/incubating spaces that foster learning cities.
