For interest,

"When computers were introduced into classrooms, little was known how
they should be placed and how their use would affect students’
posture. It turns out computer use is often better for bodies than the
use of traditional pen and paper, as students don’t slump and hunch
over their desks. But too often students don’t move for long periods
and this creates risk. Leon Straker has produced guidelines for
computer use in classrooms. He is keen that good practice for posture
and regular movement be adopted early in life as habits remain long
after school."
