In a tiny rural town in the middle of Wisconsin you will find the most amazing students in the world. They are hard workers. Most of them have "after school" jobs. They are kind and caring. Many of them participate in community service in their free time. They strive for excellence; often asking what they can do to improve their grades because, as I've heard multiple times, "I want to be on honors or high honors."
These exceptional students are priceless.
Their ability to collaborate with one another amazes me. Having an interactive classroom has allowed us to increase learning exponentially. They love nothing better than getting lost in a great book and talking about it with their friends.
My students work independently, in small groups, and in large groups. In order for collaborative learning to take place, though, we need furniture that allows us to connect with one another easily and in a comfortable manner.
What is most important is that we are able to collaborate without barriers.
Various seating options will allow students to flow from station to station, amongst one another.
The most meaningful learning takes place when great minds share their thinking. This is why furniture that easily converts from an independent learning space to a group setting easily and effortlessly is so essential for our space.
