Private Space

Study nook a Those with learning difficulties are often the same kids who have trouble concentrating in an open classroom environment, but the Study Nook can help reduce those distractions with portable walls to surround the student.  The design of Aaron Kowald of the University of Canberra, the Study Nook is not commercially available, but recently won a James Dyson Australian Design Award for ingenuity and helping those with Autism or Down’s Syndrome to learn to the fullest. The beauty of it is that the Study Nook folds up when not in use, but can help a child wall off the world and focus on the work at hand. With a pair of clip boards, a white board and places for pencils and cards, it is a complete learning environment. I can’t wait until someone sells it.
