HUMAN-CENTERED DESIGN Focusing on the needs of students and teachers HUMAN-CENTERED DESIGN People - students, faculty, administrators and more - are the core of all learning. Human-centered design puts their needs first. By applying human-centered design, spaces will support learning and build a positive experience. Create positive and productive learning spaces that are dynamic and fluid to accommodate different learning and teaching styles - since we all see the world in different ways, space needs to offer variety. Thoughtfully designed learning spaces will be healthful, stimulating, balanced, and adaptable. • Healthful spaces address physical needs, ergonomics and lighting. • Stimulating spaces enhance creativity and motivations with sensory cues, color, texture, shapes, elements of surprise, visual connectivity, and natural elements. • Balanced spaces combine community spaces, social spaces, and private spaces where learning occurs. • Adaptable spaces accommodate all learners and all teachers with flexibility, personalization, space ownership, changeable focal points (it’s not always the front of the room), and technology application. KI is passionate about what the future of learning might become, Human-centered design will inspire our research, our thoughts, our focus, and our contribution to a world of learning as we design solutions that support the learner and our partner schools. p. 9 Sway lounge chairs, Apply café stools, Connection Zone benching Sela lounge chairs, Learn2 seating, Strive café stools and 4-leg chairs with casters, Backbone media center, Portico tables, Lightline wall
