Pull Up a Seat!
My students need a flexible seat for collaboration while working in the media center.
Flexible learning commons have become an important area in the media center, allowing students to move and change seating configurations in order to suit their immediate needs. Providing mobile seating options help students with their needs, no matter what they might be.
I work at a public K12 high school that serves approximately 1800 students in 9-12th grade.
We live in a predominately military community, serving students from all walks of life. Our community tends to be a high poverty region, where a good percentage of the students are not capable of providing basic school supplies for themselves. Because of the needs of the students, we strive to provide a full service media center that helps students with any materials they may need to complete schoolwork.
Students have a wide variety of projects to complete for school purposes. All of these projects include some research component. Many others include technology and/or collaboration. For years, the media center had been a stale space, with no option for students to use the large space. However, in the past two years, the media center has been transformed with student use in mind. Purchasing new furniture items that can be moved around to suit the needs of the students is essential to the goal of becoming the heart of the school. Students will be able to pull this stool up to a computer station to work collaboratively with another student, or bring several of these stools together in order to plan and organize the work that needs to be done. Either way, providing a flexible work area fulfills a need by the students in my school.
Donations to this project will benefit students by allowing them to use a very flexible and fluid area of the school in any way that suits their needs in order to complete assigned activities.
