For years, many have predicted the death of the office. Mobile technology allows us to work anywhere, so why do you need an office at all? Yet as the world becomes more complex, the places we work have never been more relevant. Work is a social activity and people need places to come together to solve problems. The office isn’t going away—it’s in the midst of a renaissance, where workplaces are becoming something fundamentally different.

For years Steelcase has studied education with a unique, human-centered design research process. We observe educators at work and test design principles, product ideas and applications with the goal of improving student success, while immersing ourselves in the relevant research of others in such fields as learning research, cognitive neuroscience, environmental psychology, behavioral and social sciences and ergonomics.
This Education Edition is a compilation of 360 stories that explore these insights and demonstrate how new active learning environments improve student engagement and outcomes and help prepare them for success in the creative economy.Browse all past issues
