#DONATE4IMPACT: Flexible Seating

#DONATE4IMPACT: Flexible Seating

The main goal of this project is to provide students with choice, movement and opportunities for collaboration. Flexible seating aligns with our Bismarck Public School’s mission and vision because it is 21st Century learning. With different seating options available such as a wobbly chairs, exercise balls and scoop chairs students are able to choose where they do their best learning. When we think about why adults enjoy doing work at a coffee shop, it is because they have different seating options and they are able to choose where they sit. Flexible seating is 21st century learning because it encourages teamwork and collaboration. Research suggests students who have ADHD/ADD benefit from rocking while working or bouncing. Seat pedals and bounce bands will also help with active students to focus during their learning. My hopes, with flexible seating, is to create a welcoming real-world collaborative space for students.
