Our EdSpaces Experience

Explore the latest trends in education design as we recap our favorite products from this year's event and how they are reshaping the future of learning environments.

Ed Spaces

In the dynamic landscape of education, the human-centered design paradigm stands as a transformative force, reshaping how we conceive, create, and deliver learning experiences.

Let's delve into the latest excursion our specialists took to the EdSpaces Education Conference where we soaked in the advances and innovations the contract furniture industry supports.

The way children learn and their classroom needs are rapidly changing as the world around them constantly evolves. Kids today face a new age of technology-based learning, which has shifted their abilities to focus and concentrate. Still, technology isn't going anywhere, so how can we develop future classrooms to fit their minds? We found at EdSpaces that providing safe, inclusive, and active spaces will enhance the student experience and improve learning.

From the sessions we attended, we observed topics about children's social and emotional well-being as a top priority. From Cuningham's extensive research on trauma-informed design, they discovered that classrooms with minimal stimulation and many opportunities for collaboration and choice benefit the classroom environment while helping students feel more connected to the space.
Of course, furniture plays a large part in these changes. The upgrade from rows of desks and chairs to modular, vibrant, and ergonomic options contributes significantly to the overall positive atmosphere.
