This fall approximately 76 million K-12 and college students will return to the classroom in the United States, and almost 6 million in Canada. Pre-pandemic, designers were already exploring how learning spaces should evolve to meet changing student needs and education styles. As people are coming back, learning environments need to meet a broader range of student, teacher, and staff needs through flexible spaces that communicate safety, create a sense of belonging, and help students of all ages reconnect.
Learning Spaces Bring space and instruction into alignment with flexible classrooms designed to support multimodal learning and maximize peer-to-peer and student-to-teacher engagement. Incorporating flexible, multi-purpose tables, seating, and communication tools enables dynamic classrooms that flex to meet different types of teaching and learning throughout the day.
