Educational research is huge on flexible seating right now, but the real proof of the success of the movement is in my classroom. Students coming from a non-traditional school background also process and absorb information in non-traditional ways. Modified flexible seating is already implemented daily in my classroom. After seeing the way students struggle to stay still for long periods of time, I began to encourage them to stand by their desks, sit on stools, or sit on the floor if they so choose. I have found that students really embrace having control over their bodies. Students will be allowed to choose where they sit and how they sit to encourage a sense of ownership in where and how they learn. The Flex-Space Wobble Chairs, Flex-Space Student Lap Desks, and Flex-Space Balance Balls can be used by students throughout the day. I am excited to try some new technologies specially made to enhance active learning.
