The Translational Design of Schools - An Evidence-Based Approach to Aligning Pedagogy and Learning Environments - SensePublishers

Terry Byers's insight:

 

Another empirical study, co-authored with Wesley Imms, has just been published in Kenn Fisher's recent edited book "The Translational Design of School: An Evidence-Based Approach to Aligning Pedagogy and Learning Environments".

 

Key findings

1. The layout of the physical learning environment can influence how teachers and students use digital technology.

2. A shift from a convention unimodal front focal point (i.e. teacher whiteboard or Interactive White Board) to a 360-degree polycentric layout (i.e. many focal points around the room) correlates with a shift from away from teacher-centric to more a student-centric pedagogical model.

3. The application of a withdrawal (ABA) single-subject design was able to evaluate a spatial intervention, while working within the confines of a schooling environment.

4. Empirical evidence suggests that if you disrupt the norms of a conventional classroom layout, this can equate to enhanced pedagogical use and effectiveness of digital technology. 

 

 

evidence suggests you disrupt the norms of the conventional layout = enhanced pedagogical use of dig tech

Impact of classroom design on teacher pedagogy and student engagement and performance in mathematics - Online First - Springer

Impact of classroom design on teacher pedagogy and student engagement and performance in mathematics - Online First - Springer | New Generation Learning Spaces | Scoop.it
A resurgence in interest in classroom and school design has highlighted how little we know about the impact of learning environments on student and teacher performance. This is partly because of a lack of research methods capable of controlling the complex variables inherent to space and education. In a unique study that overcame such difficulties by using a single-subject research design in one Queensland school, open and flexible classroom arrangements, together with an infusion of one-on-one technologies, improved student perceptions of the quality of teaching and students’ levels of engagement. Separate statistical analysis also indicated significant differences in these students’ performance in mathematics when compared to like peers in more ‘traditional’ classrooms. The paper ends with a caution; on these measures, the classroom design is certainly one, but probably not the only, influence.
