Students learn best when they have some control over their environment. Flexible seating allows students to choose where and with whom they work. It gives them a sense of ownership in their learning. This floor seating will allow students the movement they need to stay more focused on their learning. The more comfortable they are, the more productive they will be. In a study by the University of Salford, flexible seating had a startlingly large effect on learning in math—73 percent of the students’ progress that was attributed to classroom design was traced back to flexibility and student ownership. The reasons were unclear, but the researchers' hypothesis was that academic subjects that provoke anxiety (like math!) are better addressed in classrooms that feel comfortable to students. Choice, comfort and collaboration are all critical to enhancing student learning!
