21st Century Learning Needs

To help students grow, education is more interactive than ever. That requires schools with larger classrooms featuring flexible furniture and technology to support collaboration. In overseeing development of these facilities, we work with our clients to understand their specific needs to help students succeed.

21st Century Learning is about fostering collaborative, hands-on experiences.

That requires adaptable spaces integrated with technology to best serve students.

At PROCEDEO, we’re tuned into the ever-evolving education trends and the best practices and regulations associated with them.

We work closely with our clients to understand their unique needs and develop facilities that help students grow to their full potential.

Just like 21st Century Learning, our approach is never one-size-fits-all.

From design to budget development and procurement, we manage each step, ensuring a smooth, transparent process executed in the most economical way.

“Instruction drives construction.”

Classrooms used to be rows of desks, all facing a teacher and a chalkboard.

Given research on the variety of ways students learn and the skills needed to succeed today, that’s no longer the case.

Instead of one-way instruction, learning is more interactive, empowering students to explore their creativity and build critical thinking skills.

To support that, schools now feature dedicated collaboration areas and larger classrooms with flexible furniture that can be arranged in numerous ways to better facilitate group work.

When renovating schools, walls must sometimes be moved to create these larger rooms in compliance with education requirements, making it critical to hire architects who understand the guidelines and can design within those parameters.

It’s also integral to plan for the proper technology for students and teachers.

Classrooms often feature interactive whiteboards and large monitors, and the COVID pandemic has also accelerated the need to support virtual learning options.

A hallmark of 21st Century Learning is also expanded offerings for career and technical education (CTE), providing students the opportunity to choose a career pathway that can prepare them for in-demand jobs right out of high school.

These programs encompass a wide range of industries like welding, coding and healthcare that often require rooms with specialized equipment or machinery.

“Our team prides itself on being large enough to provide exceptional service and small enough to truly listen.”

We work to understand clients’ preferences including furniture color and unique equipment needs.

Through our procurement channels we identify competitive vendor options, discuss the best choice and oversee the process all the way to installation.

Our flexibility means that we can design schools in accordance with the leading research-based trends while also serving individual needs.

By working hand-in-hand, we support a shared mission: Preparing the students of today to lead us tomorrow.
