SUMMARY  21st century learning environments promote the 4 C’s – Communication, Collaboration, Critical Thinking, and Creativity  If designed to be appropriate for the intended grade level, real world workplace environments serve as models for S.T.E.M. learning spaces.  Integration of furniture, technology, and equipment requires significant coordination.  Technology and furnishings should be selected to support the curriculum. To support multiple modes of teaching and learning, they should be as flexible as possible without compromising functionality.
