FAV Directory Furniture/Audio/Visuals for Engaging Learning Spaces
This FAV Directory is fashioned after Transformative Learning Space Design that embodies the pedagogical change from teacher-centered learning to student-centered learning. Here, the physical learning space itself plays a key role in our students mental and physical well-being and becomes embedded with a school’s overall social and emotional learning plans. Traditional learning spaces designed with a singular purpose are transformed to multi-purpose learning spaces. This transformation from 20th-century to 21st-century learning spaces uses a new lexicon to describe the metamorphosis from:
within learning spaces
As classrooms and labs become more flexible and multipurpose, we start to look at the whole space (typically 960 sq. ft.) laid out with groupings of micro learning spaces and micro making spaces. In libraries, we typically have more area space to work with and can craft larger groupings of learning zones.
Please contact me as I would be happy to consult with you on a deeper level as a Learning Environment Consultant. In my FAV Directory, I'm advocating what I call, MobiMod™ (mobile and modular) furniture and A/V equipment to help spark activity and engagement in a variety of learning spaces that provide students a safe nest.

For all the students sitting quietly in class, needing to get their wiggles out
Because I don't want to sit on my bum all day
Variety is the spice of learning
Working at school like adults work @ work
We're all plugged in
Let's experience the world right here in class
These walls speak to kids
Who says learning has to be hard?
