Furniture For All Ages In The Modern Classroom
Once upon a time students used to learn with slate and chalk in classrooms often without desks. Our educational system has come a long way and with it how classrooms look and the furniture and accessories used to facilitate learning. In fact, choice of furniture can directly impact what is known as “active learning,” a fast growing trend in the classroom where the learning isn’t a one-way path from teacher to student. Instead, students are actively involved in the learning and teaching process. It has become immensely popular for one reason: it works. However, student engagement and teacher facilitation, regardless of the lesson style, can be limited based on the space planning and furniture in a classroom.
(For example: A traditional desks and chairs are cumbersome things to maneuver for group and partner sessions, limiting the collaborative work that students can achieve. On the flip side, prearranged group tables can be difficult to separate quickly in the event of an exam or pop quiz.)

Teachers Matter Too: They Should Have Quality Furniture For Their Own Use
From desks and chairs to bookshelves and student-file organizations, ProfTech has the high quality, environmentally conscious, and ergonomic furniture to suit your teaching style at a price that’s easily afforded. Ergonomic chairs are a must have for any teacher taking a break between classes after extensively standing on his feet. A proper desk designed for the many materials and records a teacher uses on a daily basis is essential for maintaining personal organization. And let’s face it: teachers must have some sort of filing system or storage solution. Compact filing cabinets work wonders for an instructor who needs easy access to specific files on a daily basis, and bookshelves are essential to any classroom library.
