Abstract:

This paper examines the critical factors facing educational spatial design in today’s knowledge economy. The majority of learning spaces today are designed for 19th century learning, not taking into consideration the advancements in pedagogy, technology and a new economy. It is no longer enough to design educational facilities for durability and longevity of the physical building alone; there are many other considerations that must come into play. The outcome of this research is an easy to use on line reference tool for teachers, enabling them to take control of their classroom design , using established criteria, their own requirements and in supporting their pedagogies and learning styles. As a result, students will have a positive and motivating in class experience in a supportive, intentional environment.
