Colours for the Classroom If you ask a teacher what affects and influences how the learners in his / her class learn, you would get a range of different responses; such as teaching strategies, curriculum and teacher's personality and relationship with learners.

However using a variety of colours in a classroom reduces passivity and boredom. So your classroom should incorporate various colours to reduce monotony and visually invigorate learners. Consider the age and gender of your learners, as well as the subject and activity, when selecting the colours. ~*~ Apples of Your Eye! ~*~: Writer's Notebook Organization!

Colourful Classrooms – How To Shift Grey Matter “Differentiate”… “be inclusive” … “ensure all learners are engaged in the classroom”. These are some of the most common chants we often hear from those with a stake in the education field. By that, I mean politicians, businesses, educational leaders, parents, students, and even our wider community. So by that, you see, I mean everyone. That’s right, we have long known that education is a subject that we are all experts in, because at some point in our life we have engaged at least once with it.
