An effective learning environment consists of more than having the books, materials, and other resources needed to instruct students. It also means creating a safe classroom—one that protects the health and safety of students, teachers, and staff. Versare’s room dividers and partitions can be part of the solution in building a safe and effective learning environment in your classroom.

Classrooms That Protect the Safety of Students

With COVID-19, keeping students safe can be a tall order. Schools are utilizing tighter building security, creating and practicing emergency action plans, raising the bar for cleaning and sanitization of school buildings, implementing greater use of school counselors, and much more, in an effort to keep everyone safe.

One tactic some schools are using to protect students is implementing protective layouts inside the classroom, such as partitions to serve as room dividers, desktop screen/sneeze guards, portable walls and more. Partitions can also be used to separate the learning space into multiple areas, helping to maintain social distancing to slow the spread of COVID-19.

Classrooms With Flexible Design Solutions

An effective classroom is one that creates a dynamic environment for students. In cases where multiple classes use the same room, the challenge is to adapt that space to the needs of each group of students. The key here is flexibility. A more flexible and adaptable classroom allows space to be tailored specifically to the purpose and needs of each class. For example, sections can be cordoned off for quiet reading, individual research or group discussions.

By using Versare’s lightweight mobile dividers, one multi-purpose classroom can be quickly and easily transformed into a dual activity space, a group learning area, a break-out space or a one-on-one student and teacher meeting area as needed.

Classrooms That Limit Distractions

Portable dividers also open the door for a variety of space options beyond dividing a classroom. In addition to providing a physical barrier, portable room dividers also provide noise reduction properties. They offer seclusion and remove potential distractions within a classroom, creating an environment that promotes productivity and focus instead of derailing them.
