This week, the Peter Li Education Group, publishers of educational industry-focused magazines School Panning & Management and College Planning & Management, released a special multimedia program entitled “Impact On Learning.”
To kick off the program, Editor, Deb Moore and her team of researchers, inculcate their findings in a thirty-one page examination of various case studies surrounding the impact of the physical environment on a student’s ability to learn and (equally important) an instructor’s ability to teach.
The publication’s first real-world look at how the physical properties of a school are planned, manufactured and delivered features the winning (and not in the Charlie Sheen kind of way!) combination of Paragon Furniture and Contrax Furnishings on the Cedar Creek High School project in Cedar Creek, TX (part of the Bastrop ISD).
The key takeaways from the project snapshot are:
• Open environments where learning can break out in any and all spaces.
• Student collaboration requires flexible furniture that can reconfigure on the fly.
• A clear Supplier-Project Manager-End user communication channel greatly increases a project’s success rate.
