Classroom design – a psychological approach
Sandhya N Ramchandani
Achieving continuous improvement in educational outcomes has always been an area of concern for educators and this keeps them constantly alert. Yet, classroom design and its psychological impact on learners is often overlooked as a contributing factor. Certain areas of psychology that relate directly to classroom design and the learning environment are:
- human factors (engineering)
- social psychology
From the knowledge of environmental psychology of teaching and learning we understand that taking care of the nitty-gritty while designing a classroom goes a long way in aiding the learning process.
