There are many things you can change in your learning environment to boost student success, from lighting and color choices to noise level, seating, and classroom organization. Packed full of easy-to-use strategies and cutting-edge research, this book walks you through the classroom the way your students experience it--through the senses.
You will earn how:

  • Safety, ergonomics, and temperature affect learning
  • Lighting, color, and peripheral stimuli improve performance
  • Noise inhibits or encourages learning
  • Toxic pollutants hinder cognition

Read about the "total learning environment" and current research on the startling relationship between school facilities and student test scores. There is no such thing as a neutral environment. Optimize your learning environment to optimize student performance!

Course focuses on Brain-based learning.
