Georgia Center for Classroom Innovation and My New Love for a Chair

Today the City Schools of Decatur Media/Tech Specialists visited the Georgia Center for Classroom Innovation at the Department of Education Towers in Atlanta.
Along with the excellent examples of technology and physical space arrangement, we saw incredible progressive furniture and instructional space concepts.
Check out the CCI website and see how to sign up for a tour for yourself or your group (appointments required).

AND... I have a new love in my life.  Named Steelcase Node.

I have officially fallen in love with the Steelcase Node desk and chair combo.  Trust me, it is much more comfortable than it looks, and it is easy to get in and out of.  And yes, it even comes with a cup holder.  I really might order one for my daughter to use for homework at home.

The circular base holds lots of supplies and gear, and the writing tray swivels and moves forward and backward.  Love this chair- Check out the site here.
