Innovative Cordilleran teacher redesigns classroom cozy for students feel calmed

Cordillera - They say the classroom should be a place for learning, inspiring and passing knowledge to the students. And to achieve that, a classroom should be set in a calming manner for student to concentrate and focus their attention to learning. 

This goal could be what Teacher Aivorie Ballangan of Supo Elementary School in Abra had in mind when she turned her boring classroom design into a minimalist cozy one. 

She painted the walls, cabinets, and drawers with a perfect balance of white and brown that doesn't dull the eyes of her students. 

She discouraged the use of too much decorations that usually hang or stick of the wall but replaced them with flowers and a map instead. 

According to Teacher Ballangan, she chose the type of classroom designs because she wanted her students fell calm during their 8-hours long stay inside of the classroom.

Teacher Ballangan knew that the classroom environment played a major role in student learning. 

A study in a university in the United Kingdom found out that a classroom with overwhelming decorations like posters and visuals actually distracts students attention but a classroom with minimal wall displays, clean and well-organize helps students concentrate and bring out their potentials.

She shared some photos of her classroom to inspire other teachers the importance of setting the classroom in a more relaxed and cozy environment.
