Many classrooms and even dorm rooms are not only unattractive, but also uninspiring. Many of these rooms were built based on functional needs and budgetary restraints. They were poorly designed and, in many cases, have been poorly maintained. But students don’t need an aesthetically pleasing room in which to learn, right? Wrong.
One major aspect of education continues to go overlooked; aesthetics is not just about what is appealing to the eye, but also what is appealing to the senses. Aesthetic comes from the Greek word: Aistehesis, which means recognition via senses. Aesthetics have a positive effect on learning.
1. That pupils with plenty of daylight in the classroom learn up to 21 percent more than pupils with less daylight.
2. That noise has a negative impact on the behavior of the pupils
3. That a fuzzy physical environment with a lot of strong colors results in jumpy children
4. That senses are activated by diversity
5. That bullying is worse in sad asphalted schoolyards than in well ordered, challenging and varying outdoor areas.
But most importantly, studies have shown that there is a direct connection between feelings and learning. A good atmosphere in the classroom creates better learning.
