Behind the Scenes with the NorvaNivel 60 Second Rule:
Whether it is your first day of Kindergarten or the final semester of college, NorvaNivel understands that every minute matters. With their new and improved 21st Century Learning Environments, schools can easily transition from independent learning settings to group discussion settings in a matter of seconds!
The drive behind this 21st Century Rule is igniting creativity, collaboration, communication, and critical thought while maximizing the minimal time educators get with their students. That is why schools across the nation have decided it is time to give their students new and improved learning environments that NorvaNivel and Kay-Twelve have to offer!
The OECD Innovative Learning Environments Project (2010) characterized a future focused learning space as:
- Learner centered – focus of all activities.
- Structured and well designed – role of teachers in supporting inquiry and autonomous learning.
- Profoundly personalized – sensitive to individual and group differences in terms of background, motivation, prior knowledge and ability.
- Inclusive – sensitive to individual and group differences in terms of learning needs.
- Social – learning is most effective when cooperative and in group settings.
With this is mind NorvaNivel has created a collection of spaces that facilitates 21st century schools in creating environments that allow learners every opportunity for greatness.
Whether your space is classroom style, collaborative style, a Makerspace, STEAM style or any other style - Kay-Twelve can design it using products from NorvaNivel!
