Positive Learning Environment - Primary

Description

This programme examines a new thinking in classroom layout which challenges conventional wisdom on the use of displays, colours and lighting.

The Communication Friendly Spaces initiative involves a fundamental re-think of basic classroom layout. Research from around the world indicates that noise pollution, harsh lighting, use of primary colours and a busy, cluttered feel to a classroom all contribute to an environment which fails to encourage good communication skills.

Proponents of the new ideas argue that thought should also be given to the use of displays of pupils' work, which may also fail to promote the most positive learning environment.
