Get the homework started
Sometimes it can be hard to find a quiet nook and get started with the homework. With the ÖVNING series, we wanted to develop smart tools so your child can more easily find peace and quiet. In the room as well as in body and mind.
“When we do home visits and interview children around the world, we see that not all have the same need when they do their homework. Some work best at a desk, while others rather move around or spread out on the floor,” tells Anna Carme, who works with the range in Children’s IKEA.
“That’s why quite some flexibility is needed around the homework, and that insight helped us develop ÖVNING.”
Room for lively legs
Still, most children have one thing in common – they can’t sit still for long.
“Children’s bodies are full of kinetic energy that needs to be released. Science also shows that the learning benefits from physical activity. No matter if it’s wild play before the homework or moving the body while you study,” says Anna and explains how it inspired to create the footrest in the series.
“You can rock it back and forth with the feet and use it as support to sit more ergonomically.”
Have fun and find focus
To have your own place of study is important but it doesn’t have to be at a desk. With the desk divider and the desk accessories organiser in the ÖVNING series, it becomes easier to create an own private space that you can take with you to the dining table or the sofa – and personalise with pictures and fun things.
“To have fun and move around regularly is often confused with distraction and lack of concentration. We think it’s the opposite. When the study time is flexible and feels fun, it helps the child to focus. It simply works as a reward and a positive spiral.”
