I love the desk arrangement in this classroom. Open group concept. Student desks are in groups, but all face the smart/white/chalk board.


Group Tables - These days group tables are considered to support students’ self-organized learning. While they are great for group or project work they have their disadvantages because some students permanently have their backs to the front and it might prove difficult to get their attention. Also there might be effects on students’ health if they constantly turn their heads to look to the front.
