The classroom must be an environment where pupils learn in conditions adapted to their needs. As a result, introducing measures that tackle each difficulty faced by pupils is of major interest in differentiated teaching. Today, even the classroom environment plays a significant role in differentiated teaching as a means of optimising the learning conditions. In contrast to traditional classroom furniture, ergonomic classroom furniture meets the specific needs of each type of teaching. When the classroom environment is conducive to the different lessons, the pupil finds the lessons much more interesting, and enjoys learning.
More effective learning thanks to an environment conducive to differentiated teaching
Introducing new teaching strategies in order to make teaching more effective, such is the very essence of differentiated teaching.
The “bus” classroom, with its aligned chairs and tables, is gradually giving way to much more innovative classroom furniture. This classic layout no longer makes it possible to individualise or differentiate each type of lesson.
The organisation of the classroom environment plays a major role in the effectiveness of each learning method. The physical environment of any classroom must be carefully designed to motivate the pupil and make them feel comfortable. Moreover, this will further foster exchanges between the teacher and the pupils, and between the pupils themselves.
The influence of the classroom environment on differentiated teaching
In order to better organise the classroom environment, and to promote differentiated teaching, ergonomic classroom furniture is an excellent solution.
For toddlers, interchangeable furniture creates various small spaces in the classroom for each type of activity. During basic learning, dividing the
children into small groups will provide the teacher with better access to each pupil. The teacher can then observe all the pupils and provide feedback to each of them, and give extra help to those who particularly need it.
Tables 3.4.5. to promote differentiated teaching
To encourage discussion, reflection, sharing and strategies without raising the noise level in the classroom, pupils can be grouped by three, four or five. This type of teaching modality optimises initiative, mutual support and tutoring.
>Our systems of 3.4.5. school tables create a positive work environment, where mutual respect prevails between pupils, and between pupils and teachers. You can arrange the tables in small islands in the classroom for group work. You can also opt for a more traditional layout, for the core subjects (the curriculum itself).
These interchangeable tables are an excellent solution to arrange the classroom environment in order to apply differentiated teaching. Innovative school furniture is indeed a real guarantee of effective learning, and therefore of academic success, since each pupil is closely monitored.
