A classroom is where students spend most of their time, so it is crucial to foster a healthy learning environment for better results. A healthy and productive classroom environment supports students and encourages them. Many students are held back by the fear of being misunderstood and embarrassed by their mistakes. A positive learning environment helps motivate students and makes them feel seen, accepted, and valued.
Here are some steps that schools can follow to introduce a positive learning environment in their classrooms:
· Use positive reinforcement
· Outline classroom rules for positive behaviour
· Be open to feedback from students
· Respond with a positive mindset
· Be updated on educational research
