Learning modes

The learning modes for future-focused learning highlight different ways in which learning occurs. Each mode requires students and teachers to be interacting differently with space and each other.

When we are aware of, and can identify how we want learning to occur, it guides the decision making on the design of learning space and technology requirements that will best support the desired learning.

Space, furniture and technology can all help to enable learning modes that coexist or can be quickly and easily transitioned.
