Study carrels have a long history when you consider they go back to 13th century London and Westminster Abbey. With Encyclopedia Britannica telling us they went back even further in cathedrals of the era, you can see the original purpose of the carrel. Back then, they were meant for serious religious study, which denotes that even in the 13th century, distractions were possible.
Today, distractions are everywhere, especially in schools. When a student needs to concentrate on a project, many classrooms have collaborative setups as a way to use distractions as a benefit. But when it comes to learning on a computer, a student may have to work on his or own. With so much demand on our new generation to learn new technology, a study carrel may be necessary in every classroom to sort through the perplexity.
Just what makes a perfect study carrel?
