Discard the Old Ways to Create an Appealing Classroom, Learning Space

Posted by Jerry Doll on Wed, Mar, 13, 2013 @ 09:03 AM

With the decline of information retention and graduation rates, educators are realizing how important it is to create an engaging, appealing learning space. In the past, classroom furniture has been selected on the sole basis of utilization rates.

The 3 Must-Haves for Today's Classroom

Posted by Jerry Doll on Mon, Jan, 28, 2013 @ 09:01 AM

Present-day students arrive in today’s classroom with higher expectations, and yesterday’s classroom furnishings and configuration often don’t fulfill those needs. For students raised in the Internet age, learning is a much more visual and interactive experience. Rows of desks facing a single lecturer are not completely obsolete. However, that conventional arrangement is now just one alternative on a list of options for today’s classroom.

The Components Of A Well-Designed Collaborative Classroom

Posted by Jerry Doll on Wed, Jan, 16, 2013 @ 09:01 AM

Classrooms have changed along with the curriculum and the culture. The standard lecture configuration, where rows of individual desks face a single information provider, is now only one item on the menu of educational experience. Today’s collaborative learning space emphasizes group learning over individual study. Technology plays a larger part as instructors assume the role of facilitator and students themselves participate in both learning and teaching. Classroom furnishings aren't designed to fit the educational environment of 10 years ago. In a real sense, today's collaborative classroom doesn’t even have a “front of the class” where teaching and learning are focused.

Posted by Jerry Doll on Thu, Dec, 27, 2012 @ 13:12 PM

The movement toward new college classroom furniture configurations is driven by rapidly shifting realities in instruction. Trends toward collaboration between disciplines, new technologies that alter the interaction between students and faculty and the increasing utilization of project-based instruction are all blazing a new landscape of classroom design. Techniques that emphasize group problem-solving as a learning method over the standard lecture format are putting students into the role of teachers, while instructors assume a facilitator function. Heavy use of technology is a common thread in these new environments.

A Pain In The Class: Why Classroom Ergonomics Are Key

Posted by Jerry Doll on Wed, Nov, 21, 2012 @ 09:11 AM

Ergonomics means “the study of work” in the original Greek. In modern times, we’ve come to associate it with comfort and convenience. An ergonomic interior in a new sports car often has as much to do with the accessibility of switches and perks like seat heaters as it does with how the design of the car interacts with the human body and the motions required to drive it. Similarly, as with classroom furniture, ergonomic furniture must refer to that which is not only comfortable but healthy and functional for students.
