In order to create flexible spaces that enable learner-centered instruction, educational institutions are gradually building or remodelling classrooms. The real effect of these places on student outcomes, however, is not well understood. This study investigated the effects of collaborative learning in flexible learning spaces on behavioral engagement of seventh graders by using a True-Experimental method. Students claimed that the adaptable space improved their learning since it encouraged active participation in the classroom. This research underlines the need of taking into account students' perspectives when designing learning environments and points to the need for additional research on the intricate connections between space, collaborative learning, and behavioral engagement.
