You’re aware that research has shown that classroom design has a big impact on academic success. What should you consider for creating classrooms that support 21st century learners?
Proponents of the latest best practices in classroom design agree that flexible furnishings and collaborative technology are critical to student success. Research* has shown that 73% of the variation in student performance can be attributed to design factors that:
Provide for physical comfort – such as temperature, lighting and comfortable seating
Provide visual stimulation – in a vibrant way that balances color and complexity
Enable individuality – allowing for personalization and the flexibility to adapt to support a variety of activities and teaching approaches
Mobility, choice of seating and providing breakout zones have been found to be of particular importance. Recommendations include offering:
Selective seating – couches, floor pillows, bean bag chairs, and traditional chair/desk combos
Mobility – bookshelves and other wheeled furnishings that can be easily rearranged
Collaborative configurations – combine desks or use larger tables in place of individual workspaces
Huddle spaces – offer convenient group seating plus technology to facilitate small group collaboration and content sharing
