The FAV Directory - Furniture/Audio/Visuals for Learning Spaces


The FAV Directory can be located at http://groupwerk.net/fav.php

The locking caster wheel as a
 game changer within Learning Spaces
The  FAV Directory is fashioned after Transformative Learning Space Design that embodies the pedagogical change from teacher-centered learning to student-centered learning. Here, the physical learning space itself plays a key role in our students mental and physical well-being and becomes embedded with a school’s overall social and emotional learning plans. Traditional learning spaces designed with a singular purpose are transformed to multi-purpose learning spaces. This transformation from 20th-century to 21st-century learning spaces uses a new lexicon to describe the metamorphosis from -

As classrooms and labs become more flexible and multipurpose, we start to look at the whole space (typically 960 sq. ft.) laid out with groupings of micro learning spaces and micro making spaces. In libraries, we typically have more area space to work with and can craft larger groupings of learning zones.

Please contact me as I would be happy to consult with you on a deeper level as a Learning Environment Consultant. In the FAV Directory, I'm advocating what I call, MobiMod™ (mobile and modular) furniture and A/V equipment to help spark activity and engagement in a variety of learning spaces that provide students a safe nest. You will also notice (with one exception), the absence of the word, desk for both students and teachers. Desks are often associated with a fixed space, whereas mobimod tables and chairs are either personalized or collaborative in flexible spaces.
