Intelligent environments

Creative collaboration in flexible learning spaces, creating more sustainable and energy-efficient ways of working, and providing responsive and coordinated security to keep learning communities safe.

What does an intelligent environment look like?

Empower collaboration by students, educators and leaders in flexible, energy-efficient, and secure learning spaces.

How can we work toward it?

Configure each learning environment to create purpose-driven and accessible learning spaces backed by smarter security and facilities management.

What are intelligent environments all about?

Purpose driven, accessible learning spaces

Sustainable & responsive design

Smart, integrated security

Facilities management

Align spatial design with learning goals, making sure spaces support multi-modal learning. Using voice, touch and digital ink helps students retain information and generate ideas.

Purpose driven, accessible learning spaces

Schools can improve the positive impact of digital technology with physical learning spaces that are more flexible, collaborative, equitable, healthy and inspiring. Teachers can now let their lesson plans drive the classroom setup, instead of the other way around.
