To Move or Not to Move? How Flexible Seating Works for Different Types of Learning

Posted by MooreCo Inc on Jan 25, 2021 4:25:00 PM

We know that diversity creates richness in any culture. Whether it’s within organizations, nations, or classrooms, including members and citizens from different backgrounds increases understanding, compassion, and acceptance. At our Thrive Together: Creating the Classrooms of Tomorrow fall webinar, our guest speakers spent a lot of time talking about how to create equity and inclusion in schools. But this doesn’t just apply to race, religion, or gender. It also applies to learning abilities. How each student learns is an important component to how they will succeed. For some, active learning may be the key to unlocking success in school where traditional models have failed. In this article, we’ll explore the benefits of flexible seating and active learning for including all students and promoting self-confidence and academic achievement.

As the year comes to a close, we reflect on all that happened in 2020.  With the pandemic came changes to how we learn, work, and socialize.

Can We Find Togetherness Through Technology?

Posted by MooreCo Inc on Dec 1, 2020 10:30:00 AM

Although it’s not the same as being together in one room, people have been able to come together through the power of technology in 2020.

While it has been an adjustment with many challenges to move many of our activities online, there is  also great opportunity being presented this year with new achievements in virtual togetherness.
