GRATNELLS Learning Rooms – embracing the full spectrum of the school environment


T


he interdependence of school architecture with teaching methods, the role of digital media and the smart use of available space, not


merely to facilitate the learning process but to stimulate it, are now part of the education landscape. In the classroom, outdoors, in communal areas and in spaces where


flexibility of use is paramount, there is a balance to be achieved between inspiration and good order. With its ‘Learning Rooms’ philosophy, Gratnells offers insights on both


an innovative approach to the best use of space and a practical set of solutions to store, display, archive, present and protect teaching and learning materials. As more sophisticated teaching methods become apparent, Gratnells


provides software-based planning tools to facilitate design and layout of classrooms in any configuration to create good order for learners and a lesson-ready infrastructure for teachers. With the ubiquitous use of digital technology in schools, new


challenges have arisen for the safe storage and ready availability of devices. Smart design by Gratnells has produced a series of charging trays and trolleys which merge seamlessly into the storage system, whilst offering an efficient charging regimen ensuring that devices are always work-ready. A 2015 report entitled ‘Innovative Schools:Teaching and Learning in


the Digital Age’ from the Directorate-General for Internal Policies of the European Parliament quoted “The digital revolution… is transforming the way children play, access information, communicate and learn. We need to take care of our future by designing innovative and engaging learning environments.” This report can be found on the newly relaunched Gratnells Learning


Rooms website, which also offers a mix of ideas, advice and content for the education sector which seeks to be both practical and visionary, working to create better environments and better outcomes for learners and teachers alike.
