Created by Joe MacLeod-Iredale, the RM Delta is a workstation/ desk designed especially for connected classrooms of the future. The design basically reinterprets the traditional school desk by having a huge screen tablet PC installed in front to aid the learning process with all the PC components being placed in the scene housing to aid quick upgrade and servicing. An ergonomically designed kneeling chair and keyboard have been developed in collaboration with a physiotherapist to maximum user comfort as well. With Wi-Fi networking keeping every screen online, the teacher can easily monitor the progress of all the students in a particular class via the Delta.
When not in use, the screen and keyboard can easily be folded into the desk to provide a flat working surface for pen and paper work. Alternatively, the tablet PCs can also be controlled with a pen to help the students develop handwriting skills, drawing and working with mathematical formulae. The structure of the Delta is constructed out of anodized sheet aluminium for rigidity and abuse resistance while the weight of the screen is balanced by twin gas struts that protect the components of the PC from shocks. Aimed at creating a suitable learning-friendly classroom environment for the future, the RM Delta desks can also be easily maneuvered to help students better interact with the teacher.
