Liverpool School of Tropical Medicine were looking for integrated technology furniture for their new Active Learning Lab.
Active learning encourages deeper thought, analysis and collaboration in order to strengthen learning and requires furniture that facilitates this. zioxi integrated M1 collaborative desks were the chosen solution.
Seven M1 desks were positioned around the room in a circular configuration each accommodating eight students. Dual screens were installed at the end of the desks allowing the students to collaborate together by sharing images from their screen with the other students at their own collaborative desk or around the training room.
The space needed to be multipurpose with computers provided for student use. These computers also needed to be hidden away when necessary to allow for laptop use withing the space. The M1 mechanism is the perfect way to do this. Simply press to reveal the monitor, mouse and keyboard, which all rise out of the desk ready for a learning session.
Different colours were used to differentiate each bank of desks and comfortable chairs were added to finish the space.
Collaborative tables with integrated pop up PCs.
