21st Century Learning Environments

GreenAssociates was recently hired to analyze the learning spaces and classroom environments for Lake Forest Elementary School District 67, and provide creative solutions to re-design and renovate their existing spaces. This project included investigating the existing learning environment, making observations, and engaging the students and teachers in workshops and furniture presentations. The “Design Thinking” process involved classroom furniture prototypes for critique this spring, with test classrooms for use this fall. GreenAssociates will be working with the District to help develop District Standards that will be implemented over the next 3-5 years.
