This course looks at the role of the physical environment in children’s learning and the importance of setting up a well-organised indoor space. It will help you create a variety of rich play and learning spaces through effective organisation, showing that you don’t need to be a ‘designer’ to arrange a successful learning environment. The course includes written information and video interviews with educators that will help you assess your current indoor learning spaces.
This course will provide you with a better understanding of:
- the role of the environment in children’s learning
- how indoor learning environments can guide children’s behaviour and promote constructive learning
- the arrangement of space and the physical definition of learning spaces
- character and personality within learning environments―to ensure that the spaces you create remain ‘living’ spaces.
