Why address comfort in the design of a learning space? When students are physically comfortable, they're more at ease: They can relax, block out negative thoughts and focus more effectively on instruction. Students in the study said that being comfortable helped them feel at home in their classroom, which in turn helped them learn. One student this year said, “I feel relaxed. When I'm relaxed I'm more ready to learn.” Do you have a go to spot at home that you sit in when you need to be productive and get things done? It may be at a table or in a quiet corner, or your couch or even your bed. By having alternative seating in the classroom, students will be free to make a choice of which seating arrangement is best for their learning. By giving them a choice, I am helping them begin to learn how to make appropriate choices to make them more successful in the classroom. This also helps reduce the amount of behavior problems that can happen in the classroom. By having alternative seating, students have their own space to spread out and have room to work. Having alternative seating also helps with engagement. By having higher engagement, students will be more successful.
