We understand the connection between physical learning spaces, relationships, methods of interaction, and the whole learning experience. The challenge of twenty-first-century learning is in creating environments and spaces in which teachers can teach and learners can learn most effectively to succeed.
Learning takes a dynamic form when students have the opportunity to practice what they’ve been taught. Since no one can predict how education, technology, and teaching modalities will evolve, learning spaces must have the ability to adapt to whatever changes the future may hold. To achieve this flexibility, WF design studios and workshops have movable furniture and flexible systems that can be easily reconfigured to support different applications.
WF’s cleverly designed mobile and modular Akira™ provides better utilisation of space and flexibility in layout and application.
WF Education delivers state-of-the-art specialised spaces for the teaching of Design and Technology. We have a long history of providing the education sector with workshops and learning spaces; over £3 billion worth of educational facilities in the last five years.
Fit-for-purpose spaces motivate and capture the imagination of students, to design, develop, test and manufacture products of the future.
Transform the utilisation and application of your Design and Technology spaces with our range of fully mobile furniture and equipment. Fit-out progressive Design Studios or more traditional layouts – taking your space from functional to flexible.
The Akira™ range consists of modular and mobile furniture and quality equipment to support the creation of flexible spaces for modern learners.
One system creates infinite configurations with mobile storage, workbenches, group working and desking alongside a carefully selected range of complementary loose seating.
Make the best use of your dedicated spaces as rooms can be reconfigured easily to adapt to the curriculum and teaching requirements.
The room configurations below have been designed using the same number of individual mobile furniture elements.
Pedagogical analysis around the world is filled with a variety of critiques on the balance between the learning of knowledge and the learning of skills. In real terms within our education systems, is it this black and white? Is it one or the other?
