School districts, colleges and universities are announcing plans to resume in person education in the fall. To maintain social distancing guidelines, classroom configurations must evolve to balance educational effectiveness and student safety.
Utilizing protective shields combined with a classroom configuration that promotes social distancing is key to ensuring student safety while still fostering a comfortable learning environment.
