Design For Active Learning

The environment plays an important role in the active learning process through the use of space layout and furniture design. Each is adapted for student-to-student and student-to-teacher social interaction in the classroom, the cafeteria, the library, and informal learning areas like student unions.
Falcon provides technology-driven and researchbased solutions for colleges and universities. No matter how much or how little space is required, no matter what technological functionality is needed, Falcon furniture is highly customizable – a plus for the institution, instructors and students.


“Teamwork and group problem-solving are very important skills for exploring concepts outside of a lecture and help me to learn more effectively. ”

Samantha Rigsby, Engineering Undergrad


A recent study at North Carolina State University reported that test scores and class rankings were higher after moving from passive learning environments to active learning environments. In some early tests, student failure rates in active learning environments have dropped by 75 percent when compared with traditional classrooms.

These environments, facilitated by functional space layout and Falcon’s state-of-the-art furniture design, allow students to collaborate, creating better understanding and learning.
Falcon’s CURV, MATS, and Syntech Table Collections can be configured for today’s active learning environments. The flexible and myriad shapes allow classrooms to transition from passive lecture approaches to classrooms that support multiple types of learning:
  • Immersive
  • Blended
  • Integrated
  • Collaborative

It is the Falcon design that allows students to do what comes naturally: power up, connect, hang out. Falcon furniture can be customized for any space and any technology need, making the product at once unique, functional and stylish for any campus.
