Join this edWebinar to learn ideas and ways to design heart-centered classrooms which can enhance children’s lives and support their emotional well-being.
This edWebinar will review philosophy and theory related to developmentally appropriate practice for young learners in the primary grades, explore the pillars of the physical environment for academic learning that make up the APPEAL rating scale.
When an adult (parent, educator, guest) visits a preK classroom, they see all of the wonderful learning opportunities for the children. They see the reading nook in the far back corner, the rug for meeting and circle time near the display board, the shelves full of toys and manipulatives, and the tables and chairs that greet the children as they enter the room. The students see: the chair and table legs, possibly their cubby, and not much else. According to early childhood expert Dr. Sandra Duncan, when creating an inviting classroom environment for young children, educators need to look at it from the kids’ perspective. In her edWebinar “Through a Child’s Eyes: How Classroom Design Inspires Children’s Learning and Wonder,” Dr. Duncan explained how designing the space with a young child’s physical and emotional viewpoint in mind can ease anxiety about and create excitement for learning.
In this edWebinar, learn how designing classrooms from children’s perspectives helps improve their behaviors and inspires learning and wonder.
In this edWebinar, Mary-Margaret Gardiner, and Sarah Hadden, Ph.D., explore intentionality in using your classroom setup to foster children’s engagement, connection, and opportunities to learn more about their world in a developmentally appropriate way.

edWeb.net and MeTEOR Education announce the launch of the free professional learning community on edWeb.net to help educators at all levels create high-impact learning environments and experiences for their students. Linda Dove, M.Ed., and Director of Learning Experiences at MeTEOR Education, presented an opening edWebinar on April 3rd to launch the program to an audience of over 300 educators from around the country and the world. She presented research that shows the impact of effective learning environments on student performance. Educators were highly engaged during the program and had lots of questions about how to design effective environments that encourage students to take risks, work for special needs students, and help to manage disruptive behaviors. They wanted suggestions on how to afford creating new environments when resources are limited.
Research shows a direct connection between academic achievement and the design of the physical learning environment. During this session, participants will walk away with three deliberate actions to implement in order to align their learning environment to High-Impact Learning Experiences™.
