How schools can construct a conducive learning environment

K-12 schools have shifted significantly in the US over the past few decades, shifting from traditional teaching techniques such as memorisation, to focusing on developing skillsets for the future with a focus on problem-solving and critical thinking.The advancement of technology has also forced schools to re-think their school environments, incorporating new initiatives and encouraging more hands-on learning through tools like virtual reality (VR) goggles and touchscreen blackboards. According to EdTech Magazine, “The concept of the modern learning environment is beginning to change with school districts attempting to align their physical spaces with contemporary pedagogical philosophy”. This means that the modern learning environment should also change to help teachers better engage students, encourage them to collaborate with one another and integrate technology, instead of the old-school format of students sitting at rows of desks in front of a teacher. When it comes to creating an ideal learning space for K-12 learners in schools, there are a few common principles that should be considered.
