Mobimod Furniture & Technology Directory
Mobile and Modular or in a work, Mobimod
To flex minds, we need to flex classroom space. Classrooms of today need non-traditional eclectic designs to create a positive learning environment. The key to indoor learning space design combines a student's need to fidget, rock, swivel, stretch, and stand with mobile and modular furniture and technology. Subtle self-movement and weight transfer keeps our brains stimulated and helps prevent mental fatigue within a contained space. It's really simple, physical movement sparks the mind to enhance one's motivation, engagement, and creativity that open paths for learning.

This Mobimod Directory is curated by Doug McIntosh and is fashioned after Flexible Physical Space Design that embodies the pedagogical change from teacher-centered learning to student-centered learning. Here, the physical learning space itself plays a key role in our students mental and physical well-being and becomes embedded with a school’s overall social and emotional learning plans. Traditional learning spaces designed with a singular purpose are transformed to multi-purpose learning spaces. This transformation from 20th-century to 21st-century learning spaces uses a new lexicon to describe the metamorphosis from:

  1. Classroom to Learning Studio

  2. Library to Learning Commons

  3. Lab to Makerspace
