FEATURES OF DASH STORAGE
For teachers who want to be light on their feet, working with their students not separated behind the big desk at the front of class.
If you want variety and agility in how and where you teach, the Dash Teacher Console can liberate from you from the big desk at the front. Stand (or sit on a Turn & Learn if you need to take the weight off) anywhere in the room and eliminate the hierarchy of ‘teacher’s desk territory’.
As well as reducing the footprint of the traditional teacher’s desk, the Dash Teacher Console helps to remove the perceived and physical barrier between teachers and students. It creates a more democratic environment where all learning participants are collaborating, rather than the ‘sage on the stage’ or the ‘stand and deliver’ didactic teaching style, so popular in the Victorian era, that tends to create a ‘them and us’ dynamic. It’s a good first step to a more progressive style of teaching and learning.
The Dash Teacher Console is designed so your laptop is at the right height to use your Dash as a standing desk to work at, or use a height-adjustable Turn & Learn if you want to sit or perch for a while. You’ll probably still need to be at the front if you have a fixed presentation screen that you need to physically connect to, but the smaller footprint of the Dash still dramatically reduces the barrier between teacher and students.
Integrated storage means there is still space for files, resources (and snacks) in various combinations depending on your storage requirements. You get two trays as standard, you can add more if you wish and the top tray is lockable.
Benefits of Dash
It’s a small step towards changing the teacher / student hierarchy
Teachers tell us that they want to move on from the big desk at the front and work with their students in a more collaborative style. Ditching the big desk is a good first step towards this fresh new dynamic.
It takes up far less space than a traditional teacher’s desk, meaning more room for the most important people in the school – the students.
Useful as a standing desk and has integrated storage
Ergonomically appropriate for use as a standing desk. Integrated storage that you can configure how you like, including a lockable top drawer.
