Engaged Learning Spaces

Engaged learning spaces can be designed to enhance the learning experience by using different modes of learning.

The Flow of Learning

The Learning Ecosystem

It is now  becoming more difficult for teachers to engage students in a way that is constructive and worthwhile.

So the teacher’s pedagogical approach, use of technology and the set-up of the learning space can support the learning system.

Sebel KI researched the role that the physical learning space had on the learning system. So, correct  use of education furniture will have a positive effect.

Education is always changing and can change from day to day and period to period.school furniture

Therefore, flexible furniture settings are ideal.

Learning areas need to be able to accommodate different modes of learning.

Sebel KI range of flexible furniture settings are quick to rearrange.

See Short Settings Brochure for settings that are suitable for each learning mode.

Engaged learning spaces can enhance the learning experience by setting up for the different modes of learning.

The research revealed eight primary modes which, used with the right technology and application settings, will deliver an engaged learning experience.

Engaged Learning Modes

1. Collaboration is where  students to work in teams to resolve problems.

Therefore, settings should include tables and chairs configured with a central focus. ScreenEngaged Learnings can create defined zones for different teams.

2. Demonstation. The facilitator explains and demonstrates information,  concepts and ideas.

So the settings should be suitable for medium to large groups with a central focus point and where the presenter can display work.

3. Discussion brings peers together, to learn, throw around ideas and talk their way through them.Engaged Learning

Relaxed settings are flexible and comfortable to allow discussion and group work.

4. Experiential means students work on a project by using critical thinking and problem solving techniques.

Therefore, the ideal settings use standing- height tables with writeable surfaces, mobile storage cabinets for all sorts of hands-on activities

5. Explicit mode is led by the instructor with delivery of knowledge and information to both small and large groups.

So, tiered settings with low and standard seating, as well as stand-at tables are ideal.Engaged Learning

6. Feedback and Reflection requires individuals or small groups to separate from peers to consider ideas more deeply and challenge concepts expressed previously.

So the layout should feature flexible and mobile solutions suitable for individual and small group work. It is beneficial to have choice of desk, stool or lounge height.

7. Guided. The facilitator joins the group to quietly interrupt thought and encourage students to  think  more deeply about the concept and ideas.Engaged Learning

Ideal settings include small groups of comfortable furnishings, which are flexible. Writeable surfaces are helpful for the expert to demonstrate ideas fully.

8. Independent encourages the student to drill down further into an issue or thought process at their own pace.

Therefore, this area should include single seat settings in a quiet place. Soft or firm seating where the student can work alone.
