Haskell Education has been recognized with an award by Spaces4Learning in an end of the year issue of their newest print publication. The Think Nook from Haskell Education was given a Gold Award in the Spaces4Learning 2019 New Product Awards. As a recipient of this award, Spaces4Learning has judged the flexible classroom furniture as a product that is “enhancing the learning environment.” Categories in the 2019 awards included Classroom Furniture, Flooring, Technology, Lighting, and others. This has been the fifth time that Spaces4Learning has held the annual competition for education-centric products.
The Think Nook from Haskell Education is a mobile piece of furniture that features a padded seat, enclosed in a semi-private “nook” with three walls and a ceiling portion. It is easily relocated on four lockable wheels, allowing educators to adjust how the Think Nook is used. The modern, multi-purpose design features power outlets, additional storage, and an erasable markerboard on the back. The Think Nook is flexible classroom furniture that offers a dynamic space that can be used to enhance privacy, focus, collaboration, and ideation. “Nice variety of built-in features for collaborative learning, including storage and whiteboard options,” commented judges. “Easy to move and reconfigure.”
