 Incorporating…

  • Students into design of classroom and visuals on walls
    • Classroom walls are a public statement about the educational values of the teacher.
    • The challenge is to ponder how the walls can be used to enhance the educational objectives while including the students as a part of the learning.
    • If the students are allowed to create or co-create the displays on the walls, they will refer to, look at and engage with them more often making them learning materials instead of visual noise.
  • The walls should invite engagement, wonder and imagination; reflect the student’s learning, have an emotional or meaningful connection to the students and engage children in active interaction with the displays.

 

  • Natural elements
    • Classrooms should be filled with natural elements… not only are natural items great learning tools but they also enhance your space with beauty.
    • Displays should be hung on a simple neutral or natural background with neutral border to decrease visual over-stimulation.
