Make seating flexible.
There was a time when students were expected to sit still and learn for hours on end. That teaching style has now become outdated. Today’s students learn best actively. This means both the teacher and the space has to be actively engaged. For this to be possible, the seating has to adapt to the new standards.
Therefore, the first best practice for correct classroom arrangement is to use flexible seating. Flexible here means in functionality. In other words, the school chairs
and desk have to be sturdy enough to last a long time but also be light enough that students can move them around. This will allow children to arrange chairs in a manner that complements the curriculum and make learning participative.
Make it collaborative.
Classroom furniture that comes with caster wheels is another excellent practice to get seating right. The wheels make it easier to move the desks and chairs around and create collaborative clusters when students need to converse and interact with each other.
Make it movement-friendly.
Using furniture that gives students the freedom to make slight movements helps burn off energy that is funneled towards fidgeting. As a result, they are better focused on their studies. Effectively, they learn more and are less likely to engage in bad behaviour.
