Creating Agile Spaces without Construction Costs
Kenora Catholic District Case Study
As a rural school district, Kenora’s staff felt the latest trends in future-forward education were taking place far away in wealthier, urbanized areas.
Departing from the typical top-down pattern, the groundswell for change in Kenora’s classrooms began with teachers taking concrete action to transform their outdated classrooms into open, transparent learning environments.
Then an entire student class approached teachers with a proposal to help them rethink their classroom space – bringing valid concerns to the table and asking the adults to buy in to their case. The problem was their current furniture – acquired over the past several decades – wasn’t suitable for much beyond the static classroom with rows of desks set up for lectures.
In this case study find out how key changes were made and, with the help of VS America’s agile furniture, how teachers and students are now empowered to shape and reshape their spaces – all without the costs of construction or remodeling.
