    Re: ICT suite layout.

    All our suites were designed for complete classrom experience in a smaller space and cater for 32 workstations in each room plus an IWB, as webman has already shown you the rooms i will not show you them again.

    I would recommend a company called 'Ambic Furniture' who design and build the furniture, they built our first room (studycentre) over 5years ago and the desktops are as good now as when they were first built and our kids can be quite destructive when they want to be.

    We went even further the legs were designed around us i have attached drawings in pic format for you to look at..

    This means pcs go under the desks and then benching on the top of n shape and then wood on l shape for monitor.

    When get chance will upload some photo's..

    edit:

    Re: ICT suite layout.

    Attached is a quality(!!) pic of one of our computer rooms, the layout of the others is very similar.

    We designed them so that all the screens point the same way, easily seen from teacher's area and the door! There are no hidden screens for the little dears to get up to mischief unseen.

    Also the alignment of the desks is such that the kids have to turn away from their screens to see the board, so they're much less likely to carry on tapping away when they're meant to be concentrating on what the teacher has to say & show.

    All base units are in lockable cages under the desks, maximising desk space. Installation of desks, wiring, carpet, blinds - the lot, by Comproom Limited. I would heartily recommend them - absolutely brilliant & not expensive. They've done four computer rooms, a study area & library for us.

    Regards,

    Re: ICT suite layout.

    Nope not for us :cry: But if the new staff room replaces the current facilities with vending machines we might have to invest in a kettle and a mini fridge for the milk!

    Re: ICT suite layout.

    We have kettle, microwave and a fosters beer fridge (for the milk of course ) in our office We're also lucky I suppose to have a sink in one corner of the room, which saves us getting water from somewhere every morning! Mind you, it has a big 'not for drinking' notice aobove it, but it's not killed any of us yet!

    The trunking is aluminium & need a special tool to get access - so no problem.

    There's nothing to unplug, the keyboard, monitor & mouse leads pass through the face-plate and are secured under the bench.

    There are sockets for USB, audio & midi. We've had no problems with them in 4 years, apart from the odd loose USB socket.
