Back to School: Furniture Made For Classrooms

Back to Blog
Learn by Safco furniture products in a school settingEvery September, students and teachers prepare to go back to school. Teachers design their classrooms with colourful decorations and also organize all of the necessary educational materials. Additionally, in order for students to be the most productive and learn in a quality environment, they need furniture that’s made for classrooms. At Source, we offer multi-use furniture that goes beyond the traditional corporate office setting. In this article, we’ll explain how to best utilize furniture in classroom and school settings.

5 Ways You can Use Furniture to Enhance Learning

1) Introduce collaborative learning in the classroom. Collaborative learning is student centred, empowering the student to be an active participant in the learning process. Moreover, it’s easy to encourage collaborative learning when flexible seating options are available. Soft seating and stools are more comfortable and allow for students to gather close to each other to collaborate. 2) Incorporate technology-friendly furniture. We’re quickly becoming a technology-based world, and need to adapt to the evolving tech landscape. Especially in schools, technology is becoming a great learning resource. Power modules and tech accessories are crucial for classrooms. 3) Use storage solutions. Similar to workplaces, schools need organization and structure in order to thrive. Clutter in the workplace decreases productivity, and it also hinders hard work in schools as well. 4) Utilize whiteboards. Some students are visual learners. Therefore, they will appreciate seeing pictures or words on a whiteboard. 5) Use different sizes and types of tables in common areas or libraries. Students appreciate having different options for writing surfaces and study areas. In universities, libraries often have different furniture options and tables to choose from depending on the type of studying and work that students are doing.
