Introduction When it comes to creating a conducive learning environment, the right school furniture is…
Future-focused learning is teaching aimed to prepare students for the demands of the future. It empowers students to take control of their own learning by facilitating a flexible environment that fosters creativity, collaboration, critical thinking, and building problem-solving skills.
So, how do you create a future-focused classroom?
Future-focused revolves around flexibility. They should be optimised to allow students to work both independently and collaboratively and accommodate for a variety of different learning styles. This can be achieved with the combination of the right classroom layout and classroom furniture.
The classroom should be divided into multiple learning spaces to allow for:
- Independent learning: this allows students to work independently, focus, and think critically.
- Peer collaboration: fosters working collaboratively in a group.
- Creative learning: allowing students to think outside the box, and experiment with their learning.
- Student-Teacher communication space: provides students with opportunities to ask questions and deepen their understanding.
So, how can you create this space? It is all in the furniture.
The furniture you choose for your classroom should be adaptable to accommodate the demands of multiple ways of learning. At Abax Kingfisher, we supply a range of flexible school furniture designed to facilitate a future-focused classroom. Here are some examples:
As mentioned, flexibility is critical when it comes to future-focused learning. Therefore, invest in adjustable and mobile tables, like the Kingstack Triangle Student Table. This piece is designed around the unique way students interact with furniture in various classroom settings, the tables are highly mobile, and can easily adjust to the capacity of a classroom.
Similar to student tables, the classroom seating also needs to be lightweight, and mobile. Take a look at our Classic Classroom Chair, or Ariah Chair for example. Both styles come in various sizes and colours, are lightweight, and are stackable, and ideal for any learning space.
Along with furniture for the students, teachers need to have their own space to store their resources. Investing in a teachers’ station with folded sides, is perfect for a future-focused classroom as they are easy to set up, and pack away when needed.
Investing in mobile storage solutions allows you to easily transport items around the classroom and adapt more quickly to the needs of your students. We supply a wide range of trolleys and other mobile solutions that are ideal for future-focused classrooms.
