Open Concept Classroom = Positive Learning Environment
The open concept layout is the expression of an educational philosophy that promotes a high level of autonomy for students, who are being given responsibility towards their own learning progression.
Tables are structured in groups of 4 and 8 to increase collaboration with peers.
Most furniture is flexible to make collaborative environments free-form.
Students feel empowered by having some degree of choice and control over their environment. Flexible seating allows students to choose where they work and with whom. It also allows them to change their location and positions as needed.
