How to Buy the Right AV Classroom Furniture
The new school year is just beginning, and many schools, universities, and other educational institutions are in need of new classroom furniture. Desks, chairs, podiums, lecterns, and more are always necessary parts of a classroom, and with our constantly evolving educational needs, classroom technology has had to keep up. Remote learning has been around for a while now, but the pandemic has completely changed the game. With the advent of Hyflex teaching and other distance learning models, being able to easily communicate with and teach people who are in another location is crucial. This, along with the need to be able to present multimedia material in person, make it more important than ever for classrooms to have modern, technologically advanced furniture.
Factors to Consider When Choosing AV Classroom Furniture
There are many factors to take into consideration when choosing the right AV classroom furniture. All of AvinED’s furniture is customizable, meaning that, once you’ve reviewed these factors, you can design the equipment that meets your specific needs and requirements.
- Size: How big or small do you want your furniture to be? How much space do you have in your classroom? Do you need furniture for a large lecture hall or a smaller classroom? Sometimes, even a small piece of furniture gives you all the work and storage space you need, but you should know exactly how much space you have.
- Design: What kind of design are you looking for? Do you already have some furniture in place that you’d like your new furniture to match with?
- Features: What kind of functionality are you looking for? Do you need to be able to present audio and video to your students? Do you need a work station that allows you to alternate between sitting and standing? Do you need extra storage space?
