Barry, N | Raftery, D. (2016)

Curricular change is currently underway in Ireland.

The Cultural Architecture of Schools: A Study of the Relationship between School Design, the Learning Environment and Learning Communities in New Schools

Bertram, K. (2016)

The literature in the area of educational facilities design and the built environment for schools is both vast and fragmented. Broadly speaking, the literature can be grouped into three types, with the first type using the notion of the classroom as a “Third Teacher” constituting physical space as an active ...

A Quasi-Experimental and Single-Subject Research Approach as an Alternative to Traditional Post-Occupancy Evaluation of Learning Environments

Byers, T. (2016)

The past decade has seen a resurgence in the literature concerning the effectiveness of physical learning environments. A worrying characteristic of this research has been a lack of rigorous experimental methodology (Brooks, 2011; Painter et al., 2013). This may be due to the difficulties associated with randomly assigning students and ...

Evaluating the change in space in a technology-enabled primary years setting

Byers, T | Imms, W. (2016)

There has been considerable attention in the literature postulating the potential effects of contemporary, technology-enabled new generation learning spaces (NGLS) on both teaching and learning (Brooks, 2011, 2012). This has, in part, been driven by the pervasive and transformative potentiall of ubiquitous access to and use of digital technology in ...
