You may not think it, but the layout of a classroom can have a significant impact on the way students learn. Perhaps you never really gave it much thought when you were at school, but the organisation of the classroom, specifically the Classroom Tables, is an essential factor in the learning experience.

They researched 34 classrooms in seven schools and found that environmental factors, including the layout of a room, had a significant effect on students.
Here are a number of ways that learning can be improved through the layout of the classroom.
