Learning in ‘pin drop silence’ | Education News | The World of Education
The environment in an educational institute is a key feature that connects the multitude of activities on a campus and the mental and physical development of the student.
There are three key areas that build the environment for an educational institution: the Mind- the Eye- the Ear. In many respects this link is almost invisible, yet everyone experiences their influence.
Well-kept buildings, clean classrooms and equipped recreational facilities are the physical aspects which catch the eye and build the psychosocial impression. But physical environment like the surroundings, noise, temperature, and lighting as well as physical, biological, or chemical agents, ultimately builds image of the learning environment in the mind.
Creating a healthy environment for learning requires the involvement of virtually everyone in the school – students, administrators, teachers, custodial and maintenance staff. One of the key elements towards this is right architectural design and materials used in the construction.
