Today’s sedentary lifestyles are impacting the health and academic performance of students. With slashed school budgets and increased pressure surrounding standardized tests, there’s less physical education and recess time, especially in middle and high school. Technology at home and in the classroom increases screen time throughout the day, making sitting more habitual than ever. The collision of these trends is casting a negative shadow on student health and performance.

But there’s it’s not all doom and gloom. Mobile furniture works to counteract sedentary habits to meet the needs of 21st century learners.

Ergotron’s Wellness Market Manager, Betsey Banker, CWWS, CWWPM, and Marci Milius, the learning environment designer for Douglas County School District in Colorado, share how mobile furniture plays a part in creating active learning spaces. You’ll hear how Marci’s district is using LearnFit® and WorkFit® adjustable standing desks, as well as other factors central to a modern and innovative learning environment. Together, they cover how the right furniture offers flexibility and autonomy to transform students from classroom fixtures to active learners, helping improve focus, collaboration and academic success.

By listening to the recorded webinar, participants will learn about:

• The merits of an open environment
• Modern pedagogy around learning spaces
• Accessible technology and collaboration
• How movement-friendly furniture fits into open learning space design
