Computer Classroom Furniture Considerations

Room arrangement flexibility is usually better than a fixed formation. A fixed arrangement should allow focused sight lines for instruction and small groups for interaction for a blended learning approach.

A flexible arrangement might include tables with casters for mobility and the use of WiFi to reduce the need to be tethered.

Mobile technology, such as laptops, iPods and PDAs might be considered, along with docking for these devices in the furniture, if only for charging.
