Provide Flexible Seating Options

Flexible seating supports engagement and collaboration in learning. When classrooms are transformed to include a variety of seating options, students become the center of learning. Productivity increases as students work in a variety of areas in the classroom via groups or individually. The flexibility of the classroom also helps student movement, which is beneficial for learning. 3 tips to increase flex seating: 

  1. Replace desks with a table and chairs. 
  2. Create zones in the classroom that reflect your teaching style.  
  3. Limit physical barriers for group work.
