Computer Lab - Space Organization and Environmental Conditions: Case Study Assessment Compared to the Theoretical Model

Conference paper
Part of the Advances in Intelligent Systems and Computing book series (AISC, volume 788)


There are many different patterns of spatial organization and job settings within the computer classrooms. The organization of these spaces should be adapted to the working methods of the group. This article constitutes a description of a case study and a critical assessment of the working conditions in the existing classrooms. The conclusions presented in the summary should be used to make some changes in order to improve the status quo. Description of the suggested changes reflect the author’s many years of experience and interest in comparative literature studies.
