Library / tech: Schools in the independent sector are always looking at new technology as they know that by keeping one step ahead and continuously learning about digital steps forward, their students are the direct beneficiaries. Within the classroom itself, touchscreens, teaching walls and learning zones to encourage heuristic learning leads to greater success both in school and beyond, with libraries that go beyond classroom access into a world of advanced digital learning that promotes self-learning and study at all levels. Envoplan’s library designs include individual work pods, comfortable group seating, silent work corners, bespoke shelving, collaboration zones and soft seating nooks.
Are your study areas genuinely conducive to learning? Do they inspire and motivate students to sit down and study, or do they actively avoid them?
