Study: Learning Can Be Harmed by Classroom Design
by Tristan Roberts
In the only study of its kind to date, the design of classrooms and schools has been found to have significant impact on student performance over the course of a year. Published in January 2013 in Building and Environment, the study found six design parameters—such as color and light—that particularly harm or help individual performance. Together, the parameters meant as much as a 25% difference over the course of a year for an individual.
