How Can I Use Boomerang Desks?

The boomerang student desk is the perfect choice for furnishing classrooms of virtually all grades in almost all subjects. Here are some of the most common ways these workstations can be set up for students so they excel:

  1. For Individual Learning
  2. Boomerang desks offer spacious individual workstations and make it easy for the students sitting at them to focus on the material being taught. One of the most popular configurations for individual learning is setting up the desks in rows. The desks can then be positioned in such a way that each student is able to see both the board and the instructor as he or she moves about the front of the classroom.

  3. For Group Learning
  4. Placing boomerang desks in pairs of two or groups of three or more is a great way to facilitate collaboration among students. You can also fit up to three students comfortably at one desk for more spirited discussions. Whether students are sitting side-by-side or across from one another, they can work together in a cohesive way. This setup also allows teachers to give mini-lessons over the course of the period. They can simply ask everyone to turn their chairs and face the front for a brief lecture before resuming the group discussion.

  5. For Standing Learning
  6. Sitting for long stretches of time does a number on the body. With standing desks, however, schools can promote better overall health. The benefits of doing work at a standing desk include better circulation and more oxygen flow to the brain. Both of these physiological responses can actually make it easier for students to receive and retain information, thereby enhancing the learning experience.
