We think the future of classroom furniture is personalized flexibility. What do we mean by that? To adapt to the fluid environment of their classrooms, teachers need equipment that allows them to change their teaching style at a moment’s notice. And kids deserve desks that enable full engagement with the teacher and classmates, as the subject and assignment dictate.
Ideally, classroom furniture should help keep the entire class focused on the learning process, the teacher’s attention on the subject at hand, and both adaptable to the best possible presentation of the knowledge at any given moment.
“To achieve our visions, classroom furniture must be intuitively flexible, for teachers to teach in a very flexible, personalized way, and in a way that’s personalized to the students as well.” – Bob Hill, Ergotron Education Manager
What are the results for classes that share our vision? Some teachers shared their experiences with Ergotron’s LearnFit desks.
“Not only does it engage kids, but it sort of frees you to do whatever it is that you need to do in your room, when you can easily move everything around.” – Monica Escobar, 5th Grade Teacher, Arts and History, Alexandria Country Day School
“I’ve noticed that my higher level kids are performing even higher than normal, and my lower level kids are also performing higher.” – Keri King, Biology Lead Teacher, Lamar High School
