The average “functional age” of school buildings in America is nearing the half-century mark. Unfortunately, most were designed without ever taking into consideration that the way children were educated would ever change.
But it has. With the advent of technology and new approaches to teaching, schools are now scrambling to find ways to adapt to this new learning style without making costly physical changes to the building itself.
Utilizing furnishings like Kimball’s Guide, Mascot, Poly, Flip, and Dock Table is a giant step in that direction.
Designed to be flexible, adaptable, and mobile they can be arranged and rearranged to meet the ever-changing needs of today’s students and teachers. In fact, they can help transform the inside of a school without the need to make a single change to the outside.
Recently, the Global Educator Institute (GEI) recognized the innovative thinking behind Kimball Learning’s Guide, Mascot, Poly, Flip, and Dock Table and gave them their Seal of Endorsement. Less than 50 percent of all submissions to GEI are ever awarded this recognition. So, we’re pretty sure when it comes to educational products Kimball just moved to the head of the class.
