Plan ahead for AV and computer stuff that
will be at the front of your classrooms

Plan enough space at the front of the classroom right from the beginning, because if you don't... when the equipment is moved in, safety codes for ingress and egress will probably be violated.

Note that the projectors reduce the aisle (red arrows) to only 18inches!
Before the projectors were in brought in, this room had the code-required 36inches.

Don't let anyone tell you... "Go ahead and pack as many student seats in as possible.
Our instuctors won't ever use that AV/computer stuff in
our classrooms."
