Designing Productive Learning Environments.
Knirk, Frederick G.
Based on the premise that school facility design should actively encourage efficient and effective learning, this book explores key design decisions that have a crucial impact on the kind of student-teacher-media interactions which take place in all school rooms and open spaces. Topics addressed include learning space specifications; the conversion of learning specifications into architectural specifications; site planning and facility development; new facility costs and funding; indoor climate control, lighting, and acoustical control; instructional media technology requirements for effective and efficient learning; special-purpose facilities for more productive learning; and equipment acquisition for the learning environment. Appendices provide an evaluation of existing school facilities; a checklist for identifying facility requirements; a planning checklist; a summary of existing facilities and alternative uses of existing facilities; an architect selection checklist; and a list of carrel, furniture, and media suppliers.
