The way the furniture in a classroom is configured can have a significant effect on how students learn.
Students who engage in a more active learning style by solving problems and working together collaboratively can be encouraged by the way desks and tables are arranged in a room. Space shapes behavior and classroom activities. The best classroom designs are the ones that are most flexible and can be arranged, and then rearranged, to support the type of learning needing to take place. Paragon creates agile and flexible desks, tables, storage and seating that connects students and teachers to lessons, to each other, and to new ways of learning.
