Modern Learning Environments
21st Century Learning Environments: Spaces that make your future
Learning is Everywhere
More than just a classroom, we help you make the spaces that make our future.
From corners to cafeterias, learning is now personal, student driven, active and in the moment. With that, learning environments transcend the confines of the traditional classroom as Learning is Everywhere and modern learning environments acknowledges the need to facilitate modern learners as they learn beyond the confines of the traditional classroom.
SPACES FOR OUR FUTURE
Modern classrooms are playgrounds for problem solving, digital synthesis, and inquiry-based learning.
Makerspaces allow students to practice synthesizing products that challenge them to use cross-curricula skillsets to solve problems.
Career and technology (CTE) spaces are found in high schools. The focus of CTE is to facilitate the practice of real world skills and or certifications.
In effort to help learners master self-regulation and practice better focus – as well as encourage active learning – educators are now seeking seating options which allow for movement. This modern trend allows the learner to fidget while working independently or in learning groups.
The modern Library now called “Media Commons” or “Learning Commons” serves as a space to strategize as a team or work on individual products and solutions to modern challenges.
Science, Technology, Engineering, Art, and Math (STEAM)- Steam is an evolution of STEM. In this space students are encouraged to use multiple previously siloed skillsets to respond to modern challenges.
