My students are amazing kids with lots of energy. They love to stand and move around and they have very diverse learning styles. In order to encourage all types of learning, I want to incorporate standing desks for those that have higher energy levels while learning.
I am searching for standing desks in my classroom to support all my students, especially those with diverse learning styles and energy levels. Studies have shown that standing desks "increase attention spans, increase calorie expenditure, and improve efficacy while completing tasks" (Paolucci) for students across age levels. Students with ADHD in particular benefit from the increased blood flow and weight shifting while engaging in academics. The designation of standing desks also helps decrease distractions in the classroom for all students by giving fidgety students a productive outlet and reducing classroom trips across the room without purpose.
