welcome to the learninglab

Home to future thinkers, thought leaders and creative minds, the Furnware LearningLab is where you'll meet some the world's leading educationalists. Here we'll share their stories of inspiration, opinions and insights for the future.

However, while testing the prototype, students gave her an inspired 'lightbulb moment'.
