ICT Suites in Schools
Whether it’s a new build or the refurbishment of an existing classroom, a new ICT Suite can be a substantial investment for any school or college and it’s layout and furniture are just as important as the equipment it holds. There is evidence to suggest that if children actually like their learning environment, then they are more likely to want to learn!
At Whitespace we have years of experience working closely with schools and colleges across the North West, planning, designing and delivering ICT Suites in schools that make the most of the space available, creating ideal learning and teaching environments. The design of any classroom regardless of it’s uses, should start with evaluation of the space, how do teachers plan to use the room, is it dedicated for IT or would it be more beneficial to the school to have a flexible space that can be used for a variety of teaching styles and subjects? Great design not only maximizes the efficiency of the space available, it creates better learning and teaching opportunities for students and teachers.
We believe that as technology evolves, the learning environment in which it is situated must be able do the same. ICT Suites in schools should be; practical and uncluttered, well equipped to keep pace with emerging technologies and also offer comfortable, secure and spacious surroundings. As a result, we take into account layout, classroom furniture, equipment, storage, flooring, ceilings, lighting, ventilation and noise levels, resulting in a unique design scheme that meets all your requirements. Our solutions address the specific needs of this technology based learning environment, the need to control glare, desks height, seating, monitor and keyboard positioning, whilst providing optimum flexibility for individual and group study. If we can’t find the right ‘off-the-shelf’ products, we are experienced in designing and installing bespoke furniture.
Making the best use of the space available is essential in any learning space. So, whether it’s a simple makeover, a classroom refurbishment or a complete school fit-out, working closely with you from concept to completion, we are confident that we can transform your learning environment into an innovative, inspirational and positive place to learn.
