K-12 Design Trends to Watch in 2020

How do education facilities directly impact student performance?
The configuration of a space can give students cues on how they should behave – for example, if a student walks into a room with open, soft seating arranged in a group setting, they might be more inclined to engage with each other upon entering. Whereas when all desks are placed in a row, faced forward, this might lead students to walk in, take a seat, and wait for the instructor to give direction on what’s expected of them next – as the configuration tells the user a different story.

Read on in spaces4learning to see how education in 2020 will be changing, and what that means for the future generations.
