Elevate student engagement by rethinking classroom environments
As student age, their engagement in school drops dramatically – from a high of 74% in fifth grade to a low of 33% in high school per Gallup. But what can schools do about it?
In 2017, Fleetwood Furniture began a multi-year study of in-depth classroom observations and experiments to better understand if engagement levels could be changed by changing the classroom environment. The company believed that benefits could be reaped from creating applications that connected subjects and classroom activities better with the ‘real’ world; kept students in motion by giving them voice, choice and hands-on options; and connected them to teachers and other students through positive relationships and communication.
