21st Century learning spaces require flexibility, teachers work to move and teach wherever the lesson takes them, and furniture design needs to consider younger students. All these factors mean schools and educators are dependent on the right tools and furniture to accommodate both the learners and their learning space.
Great for creating a ‘cave’, a reading nook or just a quiet space for reflection, Spacemakers™' fun, abstract shapes are effective at creating separate spaces in larger open learning environments. They are easy to slide, so even the littlest learners can move Spacemakers™ around the classroom to create their own mini environment. More than just a divider, the multi-functional design also has acoustic properties to soften background noise, which can sometimes be an issue in todays learning environments. Another clever design feature is that they can also be removed from the stand completely and placed on the floor to be used as a comfortable cushion. Available in a broad range of colourful, modern fabric choices, use one as a privacy screen or group them together to create your own learning zone. Learn all about their creation from two of our talented designers in this video.
Another screening option is the Room Divider. They are equally at home in an administration area when quiet or privacy is required, as they are in a classroom. They also double up as a work surface for pinboarding ideas and displaying work while helping to soften background noise in larger spaces.
In many modern classrooms, ‘front of class’ can be anywhere, so flexible work surfaces near to the learner are a ‘must have’. Whiteboards are a popular low-tech teaching and learning tool in any modern classroom. You’ll flip out over the double-sided Mobile Whiteboard. Brainstorm, capture ideas all around the classroom or have some fun with magnets with this versatile and useful item. However, if you prefer your working surfaces more fixed, you can get a more traditional whiteboard, a great accessory to any classroom. Watch our video on why whiteboards work so well in any learning environment.
