Schools are looking to embrace classroom layouts that encourage creativity, collaboration and flexibility.
As schools focus on openness, flexibility and collaboration, they are redesigning classrooms to match.
The room itself can be adapted in a flexible way to meet the needs of the teacher or the students.
Teachers say that the introduction of technology has not influenced the way they furnish their classrooms, but they add that teachers have to adapt their teaching style to accommodate moving to different parts of the room.
Research is continually proving that classroom design – including colour, lighting, acoustics and spatial organization impacts student learning.
