In a “cells and bells” school design model, students move directly to a seated position upon entering the classroom. These traditional classroom layouts do not focus on student flow throughout a space or promote movement or collaboration.


It is crucial to understand learner flow to inform flow patterns, learning areas that are visited frequently or not visited at all, the number of students per area, and overall student behavior. A meandering layout helps guide learners through the learning environment exposing them to various opportunities, all while managing important stimuli that encourage executive functioning behaviors. This design is helpful for space management, making it a good option for learning environments with limited space. It also encourages more movement, so students can easily circulate through learning experiences.
