Education Design-An Interactive Approach

New School Designs Allow For Open Collaborative Spaces

Education like any industry evolves and must adapt the teaching and learning environment based on the current generation and how they learn.

Old modular building designs used to include 700-900 Sq. Ft. per classroom, with or without restrooms, and every teacher and each classroom were self contained learning pods.   While this method still works in some instances, new data has shown that children thrive in a more collaborative learning environment.

This does not mean that the traditional teach in the front with 30 desks is not still a viable approach, but there are more creative designs that allow children to learn from each other and to strengthen their team work skills.

Modern classroom designs include smart walls, moveable walls, high ceilings, large open study rooms with comfortable furniture and lots of natural light.  There are also lots of stations for hands on learning that foster critical thinking skills and solutions development.

Experts say that to build the next generations' critical thinking skills and problem solving abilities, being able to communicate in a comfortable and open learning environment may be a key to their success. 

This method of design may not be your traditional modular building construction, but there are other methods of prefabrication that can easily accomplish this method of school construction.   MPANELS © are a great way to get high ceilings, large open spans, natural lighting, and moveable wall systems.
