Study Shows How Classroom Design Affects Student Learning

Study Shows How Classroom Design Affects Student Learning | 21st century classroom design | Scoop.it

As debate over education reform sizzles, and as teachers valiantly continue trying to do more with less, a new study suggests that it might be worth diverting at least a little attention from what’s going on in classrooms to how those spaces are being designed. The paper, published in the journal Building and the Environment, found that classroom design could be attributed to a 25% impact, positive or negative, on a student’s progress over the course of an academic year. The difference between the best- and worst-designed classrooms covered in the study? A full year’s worth of academic progress

Carlos Fosca's curator insight, August 17, 2013 9:18 AM

Las aulas son (por ahora) los entornos más representativos de la educación formal y su evolución desde un enforque de aprendizaje activo es absolutamente indispensable. Las mesas, sillas, pizarras, pantallas y todo el mobiliario y equipamiento que puede ayudarnos a crear ambientes más colaborativos debe ser repensando completamente. Este artículo presenta una propuesta muy interesante de la empresa Steecase quien esta innovando en mobiliario para las aulas que deberían ser parte de este nuevo ecosistema de aprendizaje más social y colaborativo.
