The Impact of Furniture Within Learning Spaces

What is the impact of furniture within learning spaces? In the past, research has been done on the effects of the environment on learning. But at KI, we wanted to understand the impact of the furniture alone, and the true effects on students, teachers, and learning. We decided to conduct un-biased, data-driven research to isolate furniture's impact, so we reached out to education leaders, schools, and universities across the country asking for participants in a controlled research project to determine the impact of furniture on learning spaces. Join us as we share the results of this research on topics like student participation, dynamic engagement, retention, comfort, and levels of collaboration experienced.

Meet the Speaker

Bryan Ballegeer joined KI in September 2017, having spent the previous seven years working in operations for Success Academy Charter Schools of New York, NY. His direct experience as an agent of change for a leading disruptive model within education is paired with a passion for serving, evidenced by his Chairman position for a non-profit that provides young women across NYC with exposure to STEM-based fields (stemfromdance.org). An avid traveler and explorer, Bryan resides in the NY/NJ Metro area with his wife and is completing graduate courses at Rutgers University, having received his undergraduate degree from Indiana University. In his role, Bryan is a resource to KI’s Education team focusing primarily up and down the East coast, always seeking to demonstrate his passion for education and KI’s organizational interest in helping schools drive authentic and situated change for their learning culture.
