Flexible, Powerful and Mobile
Designing an Effective
The best place to start is with the room itself. Wide doors assist in moving furniture in and out of the space. Other key considerations are room size, HVAC and ventilation requirements, ADA, wall space, and ancillary space.
Size and Capacity
Rooms intended for different types of training must consider size. Classrooms require from 15 to 17 square feet per student.
Anything below 10 feet may pose problems for instructors using visual aids. Screen height should enable learners in the rear of the class to see above (not around) the heads of the people in front of them.
Learning Space Considerations
In addition to being wheelchair friendly, the room needs to provide space for guide dogs, assistants and equipment (such as recording devices), and should be designed to meet specific ADA guidelines, such as accessible doors, hardware and signage.
Capitalizing on wall space is an easy way to gain flexibility in the classroom. Walls need open areas for whiteboards or projection screens. It is also important to leave space for acoustic panels to reduce unwanted noise.
Learning doesn’t stop inside the classroom and a secondary, more informal environment is needed to digest information. Common areas should be close but not directly adjacent to the training room so that their foot traffic isn’t distracting to those inside the room.
Choose a low-pile commercial carpeting for improved acoustics. Look for a pattern that will remain stylish until you plan to renovate the room (approximately 10 years) and will not highlight the inevitable spills of everyday use.
Proper lighting sets the stage for a productive learning environment. Lighting needs to be set to evenly light a room with the riight color temperature and brightness for the task at hand. Today's LED lighting systems are both energy effiecient and adaptable for learning and education.
The moden learning environment requires tables and seating that are designed to work with laptops and mobile devices. Falcon makes tables and booths equiiped with USB and charging stations. As technology evolves, Falcon adapts and incorporates the changes into its furniture design.
