Collab Conference Tables
  • Collab Active learning Classroom, university med school, laptops closed. Collab™ Conference Tables for Active Learning Classrooms Collab™ (short for "Collaboration") is designed for Active Learning Classrooms. The key for Active Learning Collaboration is Universal Design, which allows flexible arrangement of small groups within a larger space to form, using laptops and large displays to support data visualization.

    Collab's equilateral shape was selected as the ideal for the group activities planned. The cable management and HDMI screen sharing among laptops make for a clutter-free installation.
  • SMARTdesks Collab Active learning Classroom with FlipIT laptop Safes
    SMARTdesks is a resource for helping universities plan Active Learning Spaces. Collab™ Active Learning computer conference tables let the teachers direct the students where to sit in the collaborative learning space for the activity at hand. During open sessions, a mixture of personal laptops or installed computers or institutional laptops may be used simultaneously.

    This example shows permanently installed laptops in genuine flipIT® Laptop Safes. Laptops are tethered for physical security and have power and data connections that remain when the laptop safes are closed. Note that the flipIT® Laptop Safes are lower than the laptop screens, so they do not become visual obstructions.
  • FlipIT Laptop Safes provide multi-use flexibility
    4 keys to Active Learning Classrooms: Engagement | Participation | Flexibility | Self-Directed learning

    Engagement: Collaborative Learning Classrooms must facilitate a direct, conversational relationship between students and faculty, provide easy access to technology, avoid passivity and isolation, and promote instead, active student engagement.

    Participation: Active learning Spaces enable small group discussion and faculty circulation around the room, creating a dynamic, supportive environment that encourages participation.

    Flexibility: Collab Conference Tables give faculty the freedom to use a variety of teaching styles at will and employ a wider range of tools and methods to reach their students.

    Self-directed Learning: SMARTdesks Collab gives students ready access to the Internet and online course materials for independent study.

    Power and data is supplied from the floor, totally captured by the Collab™ Table base. Not a cable will clutter the learning space. The 8x20 inch access hatch permits easy IT access. The housing for the Concept Pop-Up power data source can be seen in the open hatch. The base conceals all unsightly cables, but provides easy access.
