Learning dynamics should determine the school furniture, not vice versa.
The challenge of educating a growing and increasingly diverse population has forced academicians to find new curricula and methodologies. We’re covering some of the most widely adopted forms of learning dynamics here, because many depend on having the proper functionalities in their furniture to succeed.
An Overview of different styles of Learning Dynamics:
• Distance Learning Enables experts and specialists to share their knowledge with students via videoconferencing capabilities. We have developed a number of options for creating effective Distance Learning environments.
• Collaborative Learning These active, noisy classrooms empower students and encourage engagement by all learners. The furniture in a collaborative learning environment must be shaped in a way that allows compact groups to be formed.
• Group Interaction Is taking on greater importance at the elementary, middle school and secondary levels. Smith System offers many furniture options that encourage participation in group activities.
• Independent Study The other side of the coin from Group Interaction, an effective independent study environment can be created with Smith System Carrels and other products.
• Knowledge Transfer A more descriptive name for the traditional classroom, knowledge transfer can take place in a wide range of environments as long as the teacher is the focus.
• Social Learning Is very practical, because it is much like the kind of environment that’s found in many workplaces: students share ideas, get feedback and information from each other.
• Technology Engagement Needs its own kind of school furniture because of its use of computers. Rather than row after row of monitors in a computer lab, this learning dynamic groups students around a computer to complete projects.
