The link between performance and the learning environment was found to be a significant factor in a pupil’s academic development.
A year-long pilot study tested 34 different learning environments, taking into account classroom orientation, natural light, acoustics, temperature and air quality. Further variables such as flexibility of space, organisation, storage facilities and use of colour were also revealed to affect a pupil’s learning progress.
The results demonstrate that the classroom environment can have a significant impact on learning progress. From high quality, purpose designed furniture to zoned areas which allow varied learning activities and the use of colour and lighting levels; a well designed classroom is a key element in effective learning.
The holistic assessment evaluated both the design and classroom function in order to establish what an effective learning environment includes.
