What is a Learning Space Analysis



What you do in your organisation and the way you do it.



Where you choose to do your work (premises + technology).



The process of breaking a complex topic into smaller parts to gain a better understanding of it.

A Learning Space Analysis is the process whereby the complex environment of the school is broken down into smaller pieces to gain a better understanding of its entirety.

Looking closer at LEARNING - what you do in your organisation, and the way you do it and SPACE - where you choose to do your activities. In other words, it is about gaining an understanding of how the learning space can help students and teachers learn and teach better. Our method for this is called KINNARPS NEXT EDUCATION®.

Why do a learning space analysis?

Students and teachers are the heart and soul of the learning space. They do the work, they use the place and they manage both. That is why the better you understand the students and the teachers and the activities they do, the better you will also understand the kind of SPACE they need to learn and teach better.

It is when you gain an understanding of what the business looks like that you will have the knowledge required that leads to improvement.
