We surveyed all students and found that what they want most is flexible seating. Students with ADD have great difficulty focusing, particularly when they are uncomfortable. Giving students a choice in where they sit leads to greater student engagement and focus. If the students are comfortable and taking ownership over their learning through flexible seating, then they will meet success!!! Learning environments can have a direct impact on student achievement. A 2012 study from the University of Minnesota found that students participated 48 percent more in discussions in a classroom with collaborative group seating versus traditional lecture-style seating, and also improved their performance on standardized tests.It also requires introducing higher-order thinking skills, like problem-solving, and emotional skills, like conflict resolution. There’s also much value in fostering turn-taking and patience – especially for a generation of kids immersed in immediate gratification.
