INSIGHTS + APPLICATIONS GUIDE
Our Insights and Applications Guide provides the latest thinking on classroom design and learning spaces.
We rethink “the box” and move away from the traditional setting of rows of fixed tablet chairs and a lectern.
Today’s students demand choices, requiring libraries to offer a range of spaces to support the many ways they learn.
Every space is a learning space. We reimagine how lounges, hallways and other informal areas can be flexible, friendly learning spaces for individuals and groups.
Share. Learn. Collaborate.
media:scape LearnLab removes the barriers to sharing information and democratizes how people access and share information. The LearnLab allows students to contribute ideas quickly and seamlessly, while the unique design removes the front of the room, allowing the instructor to teach from any location in the classroom. The triangulation of content supports multiple teaching and learning styles without disruption.

With Node, a classroom can flex from lecture mode to groups, and back again, without interruption. Node can take passive space and make it active, supporting active and team-based learning, even when student density is important.
