Reshaping Education with SitOnIt Seating

contract office marketing

Our team recently had the pleasure of participating in a webinar with our SitOnIt Seating Team to discover how the pandemic is reshaping education.  This presentation beautifully showcased what is happening in education with regard to where students learn, the use of technology, how we are focusing on wellness and safety, and of course, product trends!

Where Students Learn

Homeschooling will increase

Continued eLearning / Hybrid attendance

Flexible / Mobile Structures and Furniture

Increase in outdoor learning

Our team has experienced this with our children as they have ebb’d and flowed from classroom to home to hybrid and back again.  We see how flexible environments (ie. our showroom) promote comfortable eLearning as our little students move throughout the space seeking lounge furniture, active seating options, or the privacy of the Mute Box (by Artopex).  Comfortable, flexible spaces also help to reduce stress and fatigue from over-exposure to technology.

   

Use of Technology

Video Assited Learning

Augmented Reality Learning

Technology will create new opportunities / digital ecosystems

We have had high school physics lessons, Future Problem Solving Club meetings and even virtual fieldtrips occur in the showroom this year.  How cool!  Technology has created new opportunities for learning!

Focus on Wellness and Safety

Focus on student well-being

More school health clinics

High performance air filtration

Traditional nurse’s offices are busier places these days!  Not only is the traffic volume increasing, but the focus on mental health and academic progress has increased demand on spaces that traditionally only housed ill children.  Hand sanitizer, temperature stations, isolation spaces … schools are looking to customize nurses offices, mental health spaces, and more.

Returning to School:  Product Trends

Divider Screens help support spatial distancing in the immediate situation and can be used for privacy in the future.

Mobile seating allows you to immediately reduce the density in a given classroom and ramp back up as appropriate for community guidelines.

Mobile storage brings much needed flexibility to the learning environment.

Mobile tables keep environments flexible.  Add a Sector Tabletop Screen to promote spatial division!

Lounge seating’s innate weight and scale make them ideal for delineating space while still facilitating student interaction.

Mobile Screens create nooks, individual spaces, and add flexibility as guidelines change.

Universal Screens retrofit to the back and/or sides of a worksurface.  Clamp on screens make a quick fix!
