Creating Significant Learning Environments

 

“Learning is dependent upon the creation of significant learning environments and the immersion of the learning in that environment.” – Dwayne Harapnik

Learning environments can take any form – classrooms, playgrounds, sports fields, etc. – it is anywhere where learning can take place. With that said, the teacher cannot make the student learn. The best a teacher can do (and a teacher can be anyone, not just classroom teachers), is to create an environment where they motivate the student to take ownership of their learning.

Within my work in this course, I was able to identify and utilize theories to create and implement a significant learning environment which will guide my students to take ownership of their learning.
