Despite having no shortage of technological advances in the 21st century, today’s students still utilize the tried & true desk. Unfortunately, classic desks are becoming obsolete and a growing hindrance since lesson plans often involve student collaboration, on-demand technology usage, and impromptu group work. In order to minimize difficulties and to streamline classroom organization, many schools are starting to utilize training tables as an alternative. Training Tables add teaching flexibility and help promote a cohesive relationship between students, teachers, and technology.
Here are several reasons why they would provide a more efficient learning solution:
Training Tables Allow for Movement
Whether it’s a group project or a team-based lesson plan, more and more studies are indicating that physical movement helps keep students engaged. Training tables such as the Echo Series Dry Erase Rectangle Training Table by Haskell let students join different groups and rotate throughout the classroom while allowing teachers to incorporate organized moving into lesson plans.
