Classrooms Source: Learning Sweet Spot article by KI On the whole, when we seek to design optimized learning spaces, we must consider and understand the future direction of subject matter and the shape of disciplines to be delivered. Although a great deal of change and optimization is warranted, there cannot be a “one-solution-fits-all.” There exists no single best solution and any search for a single design will be futile. Differentiated instruction, differentiated subjects, and differentiated generations of students make standardization unattainable. Therefore to succeed, decision makers must understand the dynamics at play in learning environments and strive to enhance them. They should ensure spaces and design principles are well-aligned with evolving demographics, pedagogy, and technology. Each environment must be intentionally designed to enhance and support each model for teaching and learning. Together, architects, designers, facilities managers, educators and students must collaborate. Using deliberate and structured processes, they can identify the varying dynamics that can help shape successful classroom designs for their community’s future.
