At NAC Architecture, our designs are about more than just the building itself. Our passion lies in creating meaningful environments that advance learning, enhance wellness, and enrich lives. Space influences behavior and attitude, which in turn impacts the learning process. Academic success is enhanced when an educational environment is thoughtfully designed to spark creativity and encourage innovation. And that is exactly what we do.

Equally important to designing inspiring learning environments is creating flexible spaces that can adapt to changing curriculum and a plurality of learning styles. And who else can best tell us what they need, than educators themselves? That’s why NAC has joined forces with room2learn to sponsor a classroom design campaign that asks teachers across the country how YOU have adapted your learning spaces to meet current needs. You are already hacking your classrooms to best support your students—and we want to hear about it!

  1. Set up a free account with room2learn.org.
  2. Upload your classroom hack. Be sure to include photos and/or video that help tell your story. We want to know:
    • What problem were you trying to solve?
    • What tools and ideas did you use to arrive at your solution?
    • How did your solution impact your instruction or students’ learning?
  3. Tag your hack with “NAC” – this makes it eligible for consideration.

We love being able to recognize and promote excellence in teaching and classroom design. While we would like to be able to award everyone a cash prize, one lucky winner will receive $500 for new classroom supplies. The winner will be selected by a NAC + room2learn jury.
Winning hacks will achieve one or more of the following:

  • Helps to personalize learning.
  • Improves student engagement and interest levels.
  • Promotes student choice and student-directed learning.

Qualifying entries will be received between now and May 31, 2017.

Ready, set, hack!
