Why Should Classroom Furniture Be Movable?

Posted on: May 15, 2017

As every teacher and school staff member knows, the successful classroom is a dynamic, ever-changing environment that typically combines a variety of learning and teaching styles. Students often need time to learn independently and also need opportunities for collaboration, teamwork, and group problem solving. Versatility makes quality education possible, and movable classroom furniture supports changing needs for individual and group learning experiences. The right furniture makes teaching and learning simpler and more rewarding.

Advantages of Reconfiguring Your Classroom Furniture

Your classroom in motion spurs creativity and stimulates new ideas

If ideas seem stale or slow in coming, mixing up student groups can get thoughts flowing again. Different working groups, teams, or learning groups stimulate students in new ways as they collaborate, and bounce ideas around. Easily mobile classroom chairs, tables, lecterns, and white board easels make learning portable.

Movement creates energy, enthusiasm and excitement

What teacher or classroom facilitator has not used motion to revive students (or participants) in the middle of a long session, or after a big lunch? If students start to nod off or their attention wanders, moving or regrouping them can revive their flagging energy and refocus on learning. Movable furniture helps get intellectual and physical circulation going again.

Furniture movement in class encourages social skill building

In early childhood education, socialization is an important skill, and experience, for students just starting out in life. In fact, students of any age, when faced with a new subject, language or environment, can benefit from renewed socialization opportunities. Students can build emotional intelligence and learn how to work with different personalities, supported by classroom furniture that moves with them.

Mobile furniture enables flexible class size

When you have a speaker visiting class or observers touring your school, pull out your temporary seating to accommodate them. If another class is joining your class for the afternoon or you’re having a special event, mobile furniture allows you to handle the extra students or guests comfortably. Then store your extra mobile furniture conveniently away.
