Research on Interior Renovation Design Strategies and Post-Use Evaluation of Smart Classrooms in Colleges —— Taking Tongji University as an Example

Intelligence has become an important driving force for human beings to increase productivity and improve the quality of life since 21st century. In the field of education, using intelligence to upgrade classrooms has become a future development trend. There are many colleges and universities in China and they mainly rely on intelligent equipment to realize the upgrading of classrooms. However, the matching teaching mode and the overall environment of the teaching space are still neglected, resulting in the failure of fully use of intelligent equipment. This paper studies the design practice of the interior renovation of smart classrooms in Tongji University in Shanghai, using the methods of literature research, field surveys, questionnaires and post-use evaluation. The design strategies of the teaching space are summarized from space layout, interface materials, color design, light and lamp selection, historical style, and combination with intelligent facilities. At the same time, the design team also conducted a survey on the post-use feedback of students in Tongji University. Through the post-use evaluation and analysis of the collected data, it was concluded that the research population are satisfied with the following four aspects: space design (the use of materials and colors, space style and scale, retention and using historical style elements), classroom teaching (efficient and comfortable learning atmosphere), physical environment (comfortable light and acoustic environment), intelligent equipment (advanced facilities, easy to find, and conducive to teaching activities). This research can provide reference for future combination with intelligence and teaching space environment design.
