[NYSCATE 2018] Furnished for Success
Post in News by NinaSclafani on 13th November 2018
Think back to the classrooms where you spent your schooling. Were you seated in desk rows or were you situated at a round table with your classmates? Did the chairs have tennis balls on the bottoms of the legs to help cut down on the scraping noises of adjusting seats? And how much time, if any, did you spend sitting cross-legged on a thin carpet while your teacher read you a story?
Now think, how did those different classroom setups impact how you felt about the class? The content? The teacher? The learning experience as a whole?
As our understanding of classroom technology has improved, so has our understanding of the need to outfit our classrooms in a way that better supports student learning.
Over the years, our team has helped hundreds of educators address these concerns as they build new learning spaces for students. To do so, they encouraged educators to focus on a few key points.
Supporting Learning Outcomes
When outfitting today’s classrooms, it’s important to ensure that the furniture is not an afterthought, and instead, a tool that supports the daily goals of our educators. Considerations should include the following:
- Meets the needs of all students
- Does the furniture in your room meet the needs of all students, including students with special needs and/or limited mobility?
