Building tomorrow’s innovators – one classroom at a time.

Fableworx is an education design company who partners with P-12 and higher education institutions to create innovative next generation educational environments that facilitate exceptional learning experiences.

Engaging Teachers and Students using Four Principles of Educational Design: Space, Pedagogy, Creativity and Technology, we help learners develop the knowledge, skills, and abilities they will need to thrive.

Balancing space, pedagogy, technology, and creativity is key to creating innovative learning environments.

While many schools claim to have incorporated innovative educational technologies into their programs, few can point to actual examples of having done so in a meaningful way that truly alters the student learning experience. For example, other than “tolerating” students’ use of mobile devices, are they employed as tools to support rich dialogue and inquiry in learning environments? Do faculty seize the opportunity to use such tools as real-time response systems? Do learning spaces that support ubiquitous technology look and feel like computer labs or Starbucks?

How far along are institutions of higher education in discussions on leveraging wearable devices and creating “smart” campuses, in the same way that we’re already seeing smart homes, smart cars, and a rapidly evolving health care system that rely on true 24/7 user-generated data systems?

Students - Space

To facilitate new and engaging ways for students and faculty to interact and communicate, contemporary facilities and spaces must support productive collaboration, rich engagement, deep learning, and meaningful study, both inside and outside the classroom.

Facilities need to incorporate the infrastructure to support the technologies of today and tomorrow, while allowing the learning spaces to be flexible, adjusting their environment in real time to support the pedagogy being used, rather than creating a static, “one size-fits-all” environment.


Create learning opportunities that train your teachers to become the mentors and coaches of today’s digital-age learners.

Students - Outdoor Space

Preparation for the 21st century workforce demands that educators be more responsive in shifting the authority for learning to the students. After all, today’s workers are expected to function in collaborative and horizontal environments, as opposed to the “factory” driven, top-down, solitary worker spaces of yesterday.

Therefore, contemporary learning environments should lean heavily on collaborative spaces, supported through personalized learning technologies. Good pedagogy would encourage student engagement through complex collaborative projects based on real-world problems.


Learn how to use technology to transform any location into a learning space.


A true BYOD (bring your own device) environment should provide opportunities for student-centered learning, beginning with their own personalized learning technologies — from laptops to tablets, from smart phones to wearable devices.

An organic approach that leverages student devices has the added benefit of reducing the need for institutionally provided equipment. For example, informal learning spaces with open Wi-Fi access and inexpensive charging stations can replace over-reliance on traditional computer laboratories.


Support creativity in today’s students to keep up with the changing needs of our workforce.

Students - Creativity

Many schools remain mired in 20th Century, Industrial Revolution styles of teaching. Yet, the 21st Century workforce requires creativity and we need to incorporate that into the education system. Standardized tests continues to stifle the very capabilities that our children, communities and economies need most.

Traditionally, creativity is thought as something limited to a select few, however we believe that it doesn’t need to be this way. Creativity can be nurtured and developed from early childhood. This less “testable” skill is one of the building blocks upon which a lifetime of inquisitiveness and learning can be built.
