Event Details

Designing safe learning environments

Current strategies for combatting pathogen spread in our schools rely on compliance and diligence, and are only as effective as the care with which the policies and procedures are followed. For solutions to be truly effective they must be Continuous, Active, Safe, and Easy to implement. With the right technology this is possible not only to help stop the spread of COVID-19 but other pathogens as well, along with agents that impact allergies and asthma and the overall well-being of all students and teachers. In addition, learning environments can be designed to be quickly rearranged for physical distancing as needed, while maintaining a socially collaborative and engaging experience. This webinar will present best practices from school design and safety paired with hospital-grade disinfectant technologies to deliver smarter strategies for safely returning students and teachers to a more natural use of their indoor classroom space.
