SMARTdesks launches iGroup® Collaborative Learning Furniture January 24th at the School and College Building Expo 2012 at the Convention Center in Orlando, Florida. This innovative computer table system is based on triangular iGroup elements® that go together to form a myriad of interactive shapes. Calling it “The Origami of interaction,” iGroup gives a creative, fun approach supporting collaborative learning in K-12 classrooms.
Collaborative learning refers to the mutual exchange of ideas between students and their classroom teachers. Collaborative learning reflects a conceptual shift from traditional pedagogy to joint learning experiences for both the experts and the students.
