For many individuals, the month of August signifies the beginning or imminent return of the school season. The manner in which schools and universities operate appears to be continuously evolving, adapting to changing circumstances. While it may seem as though the lingering impact of the COVID-19 pandemic is receding, its global effects have left a lasting mark on education.
Why Education Pods?
YOURspace’s education pods were born from innovation. Given the urgent concern surrounding health and safety, affecting the confidence of both students and teachers in being present in classrooms, it became imperative to devise appropriate solutions.
Our pods provide health-conscious individuals the opportunity to maintain a certain level of seclusion within educational and communal environments. YOURspace study pods are crafted for versatility, portability, customization, and comfort. This design ensures that educators can integrate them in ways that align with their needs, while students can approach their educational journeys using their preferred methods.
Through the integration of educational pods into settings such as classrooms, libraries, or communal areas, students are empowered to alleviate health-related anxieties, all the while retaining the chance to concentrate on tasks without the distractions present in their home environments.
YOURspace learning pods heighten focus for students and educators alike. Engaging in collaborative projects with a small group of peers, sitting for examinations, preparing for or recording a lecture, or grading assignments – all of these activities, and more, find their ideal setting within a sound dampening study pod. Distractions like chatter, munching, and video-watching will no longer hinder the concentration of those seeking an environment free from sound disruptions.
Our school pods also double as homeschool pods. Learners studying from home encounter their own distinct array of distractions and obstacles that can impede their sense of receiving a conventional education. Pets, siblings, parents, and televisions – all of these familiar aspects of home life threaten to distract students and educators from effectively working in that domain.
Luckily, implementing a homeschool pod into the house is a seamless process. YOURspace pods are easy to set up and meant to adapt to personalized environments. For traditionally homeschooled students, those attending classes remotely, or individuals requiring a dedicated area to complete assignments after returning from school, the availability of a study pod at home will undoubtedly accelerate educational success.
YOURspace Study Pods in Action
We are proud to serve education spaces across the nation. Below, learn about two examples of our pods elevating students’ learning experience.
Indiana Tech’s State of the Art Library
Indiana Tech’s library has recently introduced state-of-the-art study pods from YOURspace, tailored to cater to their students’ various needs. Great for fostering small collaborative groups, conducting meetings, or providing a serene environment for individual tasks, our innovative pods have made an impact in their educational community. These pods are illuminated by LED lights, feature sound-dampening walls, and are designed to be ADA-compliant, making them a perfect fit for Indiana Tech.
Study Pods Impact on the Da Vinci Schools
The DaVinci schools in El Segundo, CA, offer the First Inspires curriculum, placing a significant focus on robotics education. Initially, students pursued their robotics studies in open space “sandboxes.” However, as demand grew for more enclosed settings alongside the existing spaces, the schools made the strategic decision to integrate YOURspace modular education pods. Our pods have enabled the students of the DaVinci schools to gather in small groups, advance their research, and enhance their overall learning experience!
The educational landscape has undergone a transformative shift for the majority of us, and YOURspace has evolved alongside it. With the introduction of education pods, these shifts bring about a sense of excitement, seamlessness, and unmistakable improvement!
