Creating An Adaptable Classroom For Project Based Learning

Project-based learning (PBL) plays to so many strengths in the classroom environment. Students are encouraged to develop active projects collaboratively, which are based on real world challenges to enhance critical thinking and stimulate engagement. But what does this actually look like in the classroom and how can you facilitate learning spaces for project-based learning in your school?

What Is The Perfect Project-Based Learning Classroom?

For the perfect project-based learning classrooms, there are four main sections that classroom leaders need to consider: Environment; Learning; Information and Resources.


The classroom as a learning area can consist of a range of layouts that can be utilised as necessary. No longer a fixed space containing heavy, unwieldy furniture, but zones that can be used with physical movement to explore projects, or social collaborative groups who can easily work together with creative ideas and solutions. Envoplan’s experienced teamwork with your school to ensure your learning spaces offer a range of moveable and flexible designs that enhances active learning of real-world skills where students can achieve their best, always.


How do your students learn? Is the classroom laid out to support comfortable study areas that will enhance learning and give students options as to how they learn best? We specialise in classroom furniture such as desks with wheels, wobble stools and much more that supports students and staff to be able to move as needed to give you the option of how you want your classroom to be utilised. Small breakout areas with soft seating inspire successful collaborative efforts and facilitate group work for even better learning.


Key to any classroom is the access students have to finding out what they need to know. Many schools have patchy connectivity that regularly drops or have hardware which needs updating. The ideal project-based classroom offers a multi-disciplinary full suite of technology that gives instant connectivity and encourages creativity, leading to the desire to engage much deeper with the topics set. Envoplan’s superb technology options make mobile learning fast and easy for everyone in your school, whatever their needs and requirements. It is not simply digital access that is needed – our Teaching Walls, whiteboards, library areas and more will not only make your classrooms look amazing, they will give your staff every benefit they need to communicate and educate at all levels.


Your main resource in the classroom is of course your teaching staff. Project based learning classrooms rely heavily on your teachers to set up the parameters for the initial direction of the project; from then on the project should be led by students but your teachers still need to be engaged, to observe and guide, and to put the project back on track if needed. 

This ‘guide from the side’ approach can feel far removed from traditional forms of teaching but with Envoplan’s stylish range of seating and desk options your teachers can have multiple layouts for easy movement around the classroom. Help your teachers become your best resource with Envoplan’s all round designs for project-based classrooms.
