Partitions can be used in a classroom in a variety of different ways. Firstly, examine your reason behind installing screens and dividers.
Standard fabric screens can be helpful tools in a classroom as they serve more than one purpose. Firstly, you can use them to divide up larger spaces into smaller areas for work or play. For example, large school halls can be segmented into smaller functional spaces through the use of linked screens. Secondly, our fabric screens can also serve as display boards, so you can attach student work or school information to them, too.
Acoustic screens and dividers are designed to reduce echoing. As classrooms can be quite noisy places, installing a few acoustic partitions can help to mute this noise, preventing sound from bouncing off the walls. By introducing acoustic partitions to your classroom, you can create a more peaceful and productive learning environment.
If you are using screens for social distancing purposes in a classroom, then you need to think about how you can position them for the best effect.
Typically, although screens providing a barrier between teachers and students can be helpful, there are no official recommendations for the installation of social distancing sneeze screens between individual students. Instead, guidance recommended dividing up larger classes of students into smaller groups. To assist with this, you can use linked or connected freestanding screens to section of different areas for the individual smaller groups for play or learning.
Desk dividers can be useful on large table banks if you need to offer a barrier - you can install a line of transparent barriers down the middle of a long table so students working opposite each other are afforded some protection.
