'Classroom design and teaching must foster students’ collaborative skills in preparation for the changing requirements of tomorrow’s job market'

Classrooms must adapt to the requirements of today’s new and emerging job markets, which increasingly prize an employee’s ability to collaborate to solve complex problems and work effectively in teams.

The emerging use of technology in classrooms is helping to foster a collaborative working style among students. Forward-thinking teachers are utilising technological tools such as social networking platforms and shared visual displays to build their students’ collaborative skills.

The designer plays an increasingly important role in devising learning spaces and solutions that effectively integrate technology while enabling a delicate balance between peer collaboration and focused classroom instruction.
