Imms, Wesley; Byers, Terry – Learning Environments Research, 2017
A resurgence in interest in classroom and school design has highlighted how little we know about the impact of learning environments on student and teacher performance. This is partly because of a lack of research methods capable of controlling the complex variables inherent to space and education. In a unique study that overcame such difficulties…

Chipangura, Addwell; Aldridge, Jill – Learning Environments Research, 2017
We investigated (1) whether the learning environment perceptions of students in classes frequently exposed to multimedia differed from those of students in classes that were not, (2) whether exposure to multimedia was differentially effective for males and females and (3) relationships between students' perceptions of the learning environment and…

Earle, James E.; Fraser, Barry J. – Learning Environments Research, 2017
The main objective of this research was to use learning environment and attitude scales in evaluating online resource materials for supporting a traditional mathematics curriculum. The sample consisted of 914 middle-school students in 49 classes. A second research focus was the validation of the chosen learning environment questionnaire, the…

Migliaccio, Todd; Raskauskas, Juliana; Schmidtlein, Mathew – Learning Environments Research, 2017
Past bullying research has consistently identified common locations (e.g. bathrooms, hallways, playgrounds) on school campuses where bullying occurs, but not specific locations. This limitation does not allow researchers to take into account the unique geography of individual schools and how it contributes to bullying. A random sample of 741 grade…

Kwitonda, Jean Claude – Learning Environments Research, 2017
This study focused on foundational aspects of classroom relations. Specifically, relationships between teachers' immediacy (interpersonal) behaviours, classroom democracy, identification and learning were considered. Previous work suggests that these variables can be used as a foundation to shape classroom climate, culture and learning outcomes…

Magen-Nagar, Noga; Steinberger, Pnina – Learning Environments Research, 2017
An innovative learning environment is the current outcome of the constructivist approach, the essence of which is co-construction of knowledge in an Information and Communication Technology (ICT) environment. We examined how Israeli students perceived 10 characteristics of their classroom learning environment--student cohesiveness, teacher…

Román-Calderón, Juan Pablo; Ospina-Londoño, Mónica Patricia; Garcés-Ceballos, José David – Learning Environments Research, 2017
The article explores the validity and reliability of an instrument for measuring for the School Environment (SE) among 3610 teachers in Medellín, Colombia during 2011. A multilevel exploratory factorial analysis established through 20 items that the instrument identifies four dimensions of SE on an individual level: communication between school…

Schenke, Katerina; Ruzek, Erik; Lam, Arena C.; Karabenick, Stuart A.; Eccles, Jacquelynne S. – Learning Environments Research, 2017
Student perceptions are a pivotal point of measurement for understanding why classroom learning environments are effective. Yet there is some evidence that student perceptions cannot be reliably aggregated at the classroom level and, instead, could represent idiosyncratic experiences of students. The present study examines whether heterogeneity in…

Cardellino, Paula; Araneda, Claudio; García Alvarado, Rodrigo – Learning Environments Research, 2017
We argue that the traditional physical environment is commonly taken for granted and that little consideration has been given to how this affects pupil-teacher interactions. This article presents evidence that certain physical environments do not allow equal visual interaction and, as a result, we derive a set of basic guiding principles that…

Brez, Caitlin; Sheets, Virgil – Learning Environments Research, 2017
Despite research demonstrating the importance of recess and free play for children, schools have been reducing free play time for more academic pursuits (Ramstetter et al. in "J Sch Health" 80:517-526, 2010; Waite-Stupiansky and Findlay in "Educ Forum" 66:16-25, 2001). Recently, there has been renewed interest in understanding…

Deemer, Eric D.; Dotterer, Aryn M.; Morel, Samantha A.; Bastnagel, Abigail E. – Learning Environments Research, 2017
Rooted in achievement goal theory, the buffering hypothesis posits that contextual factors serve to moderate the deleterious effects of personal achievement goals on relevant outcomes. The present study sought to test this hypothesis by examining the interactive effects of classroom affiliation perceptions and personal achievement goals for…

Schweig, Jonathan David – Learning Environments Research, 2016
Student ratings, a critical component in policy efforts to assess and improve teaching, are often collected using questionnaires, and inferences about teachers are then based on aggregated student survey responses. While considerable attention has been paid to the reliability and validity of these aggregates, much less attention has been paid to…

Cremers, Petra H. M.; Wals, Arjen E. J.; Wesselink, Renate; Mulder, Martin – Learning Environments Research, 2016
In today's knowledge society, there is a demand for professionals who are able to create knowledge across boundaries of disciplines, professions and perspectives. Traditional universities, universities of applied sciences and institutions for vocational education are all challenged to educate these knowledge workers. Accordingly, these…

Back, Lindsey T.; Polk, Elizabeth; Keys, Christopher B.; McMahon, Susan D. – Learning Environments Research, 2016
Urban learning environments pose distinct instructional challenges for teachers and administrators, and can lead to lower achievement compared to suburban or rural schools. Today's educational climate increasingly emphasises a need for positive academic outcomes, often measured by standardised tests, on which student educational opportunities,…

Russell, Shannon L.; Wentzel, Kathryn R.; Donlan, Alice E. – Learning Environments Research, 2016
In this study, we examined teachers' beliefs concerning the meaning and nature of teacher--student trust in a diverse sample of secondary-school teachers (n = 34). Using a grounded-theory approach, a process model of teacher-adolescent trust emerged based on semi-structured interviews and focus groups. Antecedents of trust could be categorised as…
