The school environment, combined with digital education, is a critical factor affecting student success.
Creating a stimulating school environment can contribute significantly to the learning experience not only by providing them with a safe and welcoming physical environment, but also by promoting motivation, engagement, and creativity.
Experts in education and learning psychology agree on the importance of both digital education and the
school environment for students’ success. For example, a study published in the journal Educational
Researcher highlighted the importance of a stimulating and welcoming school environment that promotes social interaction and provides flexible spaces for learning.
An article published in the journal "Psychology Today" highlighted how technology, and in particular digital education, can be a useful tool for creating a stimulating school environment, encouraging students' creativity and critical thinking skills.
Finally, experts in learning psychology have underlined the importance of using common technology tools to support social and emotional learning to help students develop their self-management and decision- making skills.
While it is well established that the school environment plays a crucial role in student success, what are the cautions educators should take?
To create a stimulating classroom environment, it is necessary to provide a welcoming and open space. The classroom atmosphere must be welcoming, reassuring, and open, to make students feel comfortable in the learning environment. This can be achieved through the use of bright colors, appropriate lighting, and decorating the classroom with stimulating and motivating elements such as educational posters,
motivational signs, and various artifacts.
Creating a classroom atmosphere that promotes social interaction, through collaborative activities and
group work, can be a great help for students to feel comfortable in the learning environment.
Offering a variety of learning options and flexible spaces is important. Students need a space where they
can focus and work effectively. However, creating a stimulating school environment can also mean
providing them with a wide variety of flexible learning spaces, such as the library or computer lab, where
they can work alone or in groups.
The use of technological devices such as tablets, computers and smartboards can make learning more
engaging and interesting for students. Digital education also offers the possibility of personalizing students' learning journey and improving access to learning resources, thereby increasing their motivation and engagement.
Students are often more motivated when they have the opportunity to explore their interest and apply
their ideas and skills. Projects and activities that encourage creativity and the ability to think outside the
box can help students discover new passions and develop new skills.
Asking students for suggestions and opinions on classroom layout and choice of materials can help create an environment that is meaningful and useful for everyone.
Teachers should be able to provide emotional support to their students, especially when difficult times
occur. This can help students feel understood and supported, creating a more positive and welcoming
Students have unique and diverse life experiences, and including these experiences in educational
programming can help students feel valued and build more meaningful relationships with their peers and
More, providing space for experimentation is crucial to creating a stimulating school environment. Students should feel free to explore and experiment, trying out new approaches, ideas, and ways of thinking. Giving students the space and support to experiment can help them develop an open and flexible mindset, which are key elements for success in life.
Creating a stimulating school environment requires a number of actions and strategies, including creating a welcoming and positive atmosphere, providing flexible spaces, using digital teaching, promoting creativity and experimentation, involving students in planning, enhancing students' life experiences, and providing emotional support and experimentation. Implementing these strategies can help create a stimulating school environment that promotes student success and helps students reach their full potential.
