1.) Versatile Chairs

First things first, your students are going to spend a lot of time sitting in their chairs when reading, taking tests, and tasking throughout the day. For this reason, it's important to provide them with comfortable seating that's easy to use. We recommend modern chairs specifically designed for classroom environments like those from the OFM Stars Foresee Collection. They come equipped with storage baskets underneath the seats that will keep your aisles organized. Stars Foresee chairs are also available with adjustable tablet arms that feature optional cupholders for improved versatility. The easy to clean seats and backs make for long term durability and good-looking learning interiors that spark creativity.

2.) Height Adjustable Workstations

Rest assured, you don't want your students sitting all day long. This causes good posture habits to suffer. Sitting for extended periods of time causes fatigue and poor blood flow. We recommend improving your classroom, library, and group work environments with height adjustable workstations. They'll encourage continuous movement and healthy habits that will pay dividends in the future. Popular height adjustable desks like the Verve and Sphere from Safco are a must consider. They're easy to use, affordable, and supremely beneficial.

3.) Collaborative Tables

Collaborative Classroom Table Configuration

Studies have shown that most students learn better when working in groups. If you're looking to encourage creativity and collaboration, Zook tables from Global are the way to go. These innovative multi purpose tables are available with surface level power inputs and in more than 20 finish options. With Zook tables, the configuration possibilities are practically limitless. They'll allow you and your students to think outside the box and form smart layouts that keep the good ideas flowing.

4.) Portable Power Modules

These days it's all about tablets, laptops, and devices that improve the learning experience. With the demand for powered products comes an increased need for accessible outlets. If you're tired of your students converging around space wall outlets, invest in a portable power module like the FlexCharge9 from ESI Ergonomic Solutions. At just $175.00, this awesome classroom add-on is a must have. The FlexCharge9 boasts 5 AC inputs and 4 USB ports.

5.) Magnetic Marker Boards

Magnetic Marker Board

Last but not least, it's time to think outside the realm of traditional chalk boards. In truth, they've become a bit old school. This year you can modernize your learning environments with magnetic marker boards. They'll improve presentations while eliminating those screeching chalk sounds that make the hairs on your neck stand up. All jokes aside, magnetic marker boards a great for pretty much any space you can think of. The marker boards on wheels from brands like MooreCo and Global are incredibly versatile and great alternative to the traditional green chalk board that doesn't little more than take up valuable wall space.
