Observations from teachers, students & parents

  • Effortless reconfiguration of the classroom brought new dimensions to teaching and curriculum. Students move quickly to form various formations without wasting precious lesson time.
  • Maintaining student attention was no longer a challenge. The adjustability of desks addressed students inclination to move (a.k.a. fidget) during class in a natural yet nondisruptive way.
  • Students reported being more attentive and alert if standing. A more positive attitude was expressed towards year-end standardized tests.
