Erin Ryan's curator insight, October 24, 2015 4:58 PM

I love this idea and would be the firs to pilot it! I see first hand in my classes for special education how much learners struggle to sit still. Although order is necessary, the standing desk and stool provide students with an opportunity to engage and still "get their move on!" Sometimes all a students needs is a small fidget and small movement to help focus their energy. I will say I have tried exercise balls and for my middle school students, there was too much jumping around to the point that they were falling off the balls or kicking them around. It just didn't work for the small space I have so I pulled the plugs (my high school students did use them properly so perhaps it is more a maturity thing). I do let students stand and try to adjust the grouping and pace of lessons at least every 15 minutes. Standing up can improvement engagement and also help with the rise of obesity in our young people. I am interested to see some specific data for this as it may be something I promote in my building.
