A new kind of table
Zap Concept is a innovative and flexible furniture concept, that revolutionizes the way we design leadning environments.
Why Zap Concept?
… because ZAP is a functional, flexible and mobile work station, making it easy to convert otherwise passive areas and outdoor spaces into work places for both students and teachers. ZAP can replace parts of the existing furniture or be incorporated to the school’s existing interior and architecture – and create even greater freedom in teaching and spaces for differentiated learning.
… because we are not all alike!
We are not all alike, and as such there are different conditions which need to be met in order to make learning efficient. That is precisely why, it makes sense to let each pupil shape the framework for their own learning. When is learning most effective? When you lie, sit or stand? When you have space to express yourself freely? When you sit secluded in a quiet nook? When you sit alone or with others?
… because furniture shapes the posibilities!
Movement is good for health and energy levels – and often increases our learning potential. All research also suggest that we remember better when, in practice, we are trying out the things we learn. To exploit this potential, it requires flexibility in the furniture arrangement – in order to make room for practical exercises, and to allow the learning space to support movement as a natural part of the learning process.
…because learning is not necessarily done in a classroom!
Hallways, niches or common areas can work well as a temporary workstation for individual tasks or group work. Exploitation of the school’s more passive areas can help to create a space for learning – and provide more space and quiet for each student.
… because ”outdoor education” should be easily accesible!
There is much to learn in and about nature – and enjoying the outdoors also provides recreation and new energy. It’s not about making “outdoor education” a stationary installation, but more about making outdoor spaces usable and accessible. It does not take much to transform outdoor spaces into spaces for learning.
Zap concept liberates space in the classrooms, allowing changing of posture and fast relocation.
The Zap Board is suitable for outdoor learning. It is resistant to moisture and water and allows for a good writing surface in the sandpit or on the swing. The wall rails are also suitable to be mounted outdoors.
MOTIVATING LANDSCAPES BOTH INSIDE AND OUTSIDE
Zap Concept is far more than a piece of furniture – it’s a way to think about learning. Zap Concept, in conjunction with the school’s other inventory, can help create motivating learning landscapes that challenge students’ creativity and allow them to unravel their own potential and style of learning. It is about utilizing spaces inside as well as outside of the school building. All the attractive areas of the school can be utilized, thus opening up more space for the individual and better opportunity to implement movement in class.
Motivation is necessary, knowledge does not happen by itself
What do you do to solve a difficult task that challenges you? You will probably put yourself in a place where you feel comfortable? Maybe you are looking for peace and quiet, so you do not get disturbed by others? Or maybe you feel better with a nice view? If you have the opportunity, you will certainly try to create the most optimal conditions, that motivate and support you as much as possible – and that’s precisely what Zap Concept can do!
Zap Concept is always developing
At Højer Møbler, we constantly try to increase our knowledge and product range. We follow closely the developments that take place both didactically, socially and politically in order for us to meet the wishes and needs of schools, but also constantly aim for better well-being and learning for the students. Based on the knowledge and experience we get from the schools that have already implemented Zap Concept, we continue to develop and expand Zap Concept with new supplementary products from Højer Møbler.
Bork School has chosen to let Zap concept form an integrated part of teaching in all six grades within the school. All school students and teachers have their own personal Zap Board in interaction with Zap Wall rails which effectively converts otherwise passive areas and outdoor spaces into workplaces for both young and older users.
In the media rooms at Fjerritslev High School Zap concept is included to complement the other furniture, and is superbly incorporated into the architecture. Zap Concept opens to greater flexibility and optimizes the otherwise unused square meters, which encourage the teacher to incorporate many shifts in working and teaching methods during their class.
