We took away the tables and hard-backed chairs and set up the bean bags. Now it was time to see if our creative idea would actually work… The first one or two people that came into the class immediately took note of the chairs and were tempted to sit in them. However, nobody was keen on being the first to sit down on them by themselves, so they opted out and sat in the usual back two rows of the classroom. To avoid the same thing happening with everyone else that came to class, one of us sat down in the bean bag chairs and took out their notebook and pen, ready for class. (This was to get the ball rolling, so to speak). And it worked, the next few people all came in and sat down on the bean bags beside our team member. There was only one free bean bag seat left in the front row by the time the class started, which was soon taken by a late-comer to class. So in a way our experiment worked… even though we had to get it going ourselves, we still managed to entice people to sit in the front row.
