Can you create 21st century learning spaces in existing awkward spaces?
Challenge: convert the smallest older style “classroom” in the school into one of the most desirable learning spaces by just re-considering the furniture
Outcome: it works! students and staff have given it the big “thumbs up” - it is possible to convert old space into a configuration suited to 21st century learning modalities, without having to re-build. The learning space can cater for ‘campfire’, ‘watering hole’ and ‘cave’ - and have a larger ‘empty’ zone all in a compact area.
(The new chairs - ‘the Scofa’ - ‘looks like a lounge, acts like a chair’ - perfect for changing student’s perception of a “classroom” into something “just like home - I can work here”.)
