Great article, Diana!

Cheers!

Infographic: Design engaging learning spaces

Infographic: Design engaging learning spaces | School Library Advocacy | Scoop.it

"If you want evidence that educators care about the physical setup of their classrooms, look no further than Pinterest, where you’ll find thousands of pinned ideas showing how K-12 teachers have designed their classrooms.

Well-designed learning spaces aren’t just good for ambiance. Studies prove that creative classrooms have a significant impact on student learning. The purposeful use of color alone can decrease students’ eye fatigue and increase their productivity. In fact, certain colors can induce specific moods. For example, blue walls can inspire positive feelings of comfort and security. Blue hues also can potentially increase students’ retention and creativity. "
