eXpress Space for Students The eXpress Space is a dedicated space for teachers, a student and their family to focus on the learning story for the student. It provides a space to encourage students to articulate: their own learning and thinking processes what their next steps might be how they are going to proceed with those next steps what they may need more help to understand and provide evidence of the learning process and product of learning.
