The design and implementation of education facilities is critical to positive learning outcomes. Research has indicated that integrative learning environments (ILE’s) that evolve and adapt to changes in educational practices enable children to engage (more) effectively.
An ILE is created through constructing and facilitating student-centered learning environments, often with a central open-plan teaching space surrounded by smaller breakout rooms. This structure allows a teacher to educate students in a central space but also allows students to direct their own learning in self-directed zones.
But what does it take to create a dynamic, engaging and interactive classroom from a physical perspective? Let’s look at some of the recent work by our partners at Autex to learn more.
Acoustic cube wall coverings: In an ILE, the main consideration that impacts negatively on learning is the increased volume of noise. By integrating acoustic wall coverings such as these , noise pollution is significantly reduced. Acoustic wall coverings are designed to reduce and manage reverberated noise, making it the perfect addition to any classroom.
Quietspace Panel: A high-performance acoustic panel suitable for wall and ceiling applications, this paneling can be discreetly installed into the ceiling of a classroom alongside a wall covering to further reduce noise impacts. Click here for more info.
Vicinity Desk Screens: Students of modern classrooms are learning alongside technology. Computers in the classroom can be a distraction, which is where vicinity desk screens become the perfect addition. Vicinity desk screens are elegant, lightweight, 100% polyester acoustic screens designed to be fixed non-destructively to any desk, controlling noise and distractions from external inputs.
