Herman Miller, Inc. : Designing 21st Century Classrooms — from 4-traders.com
As technology and online universities continue to disrupt education, a new Herman Miller study examines the role of the physical environment in learning. The results of the longitudinal Learning Spaces Research ProgramSM (LSRP) highlight an emerging space – the learning studio – which is driving collaborative learning in 21st century education.
Learning studios overcome the rigidity of traditional classrooms with flexible, moveable design that supports diverse learning and teaching methods. Findings released last night at the Transforming Education conference at Purdue University suggest these holistic environments could improve the learning experience for students and faculty by as much as 18 percent over traditional classrooms.
