ISTE 2014

Activating the Classroom

Ergotron’s mission is to always be improving the learning experience for students, teachers and staff. With a fleet of products designed to support the use of technology in schools, such as charging systems and classroom carts, the natural next step is to activate the classroom.

What does that mean?
Studies show that introducing low-level physical activity into the classroom has a positive impact on student health, classroom engagement and academic performance:

Health benefits – Standing more during day increases circulation, burns more calories, and helps maintain muscle tone and insulin effectiveness: Buckley et al, 2013 | Duvivier et al, 2013
Classroom performance – Greater student focus and engagement is achieved with introduction of stand-biased desks: Benden et al, 2011
Academic performance – A positive correlation is shown between physical activity and test scores: Institute of Medicine, 2013 (further reading) | Centers for Disease Control & Prevention, 2010

LearnFit™ Adjustable Standing Desk

Ergotron is introducing its first classroom desk: the LearnFit Adjustable Standing Desk for students. With the simple use of a hand lever, students can effortlessly adjust the height of their desk themselves so that they can work, learn and collaborate in the way that is most natural to them.
