According to a study conducted by researchers at the University of Salford, good classroom design can improve students'performance by 25%. The study measured how many aspects of classroom design affected students'learning, including lighting, noise levels, air quality, furniture layout, flexibility and storage space.
To expand this study, the University of California, Rosell School of Education, created an insightful information map to illustrate different aspects of classroom design and how they affect students'learning. Although Salford's research is a good start, this information map brings many similar discoveries into life visually. Like the Salford study, the University of Southern California Information Chart concludes that students tend to learn better when high-quality classroom design is a major priority for educators.
