International Journal of Innovation and Learning (IJIL), Vol. 16, No. 1, 2014

Abstract: School environment is discussed as a physical area for learning and teaching, but also as an additional factor of instruction. When planning new or renovating old school buildings, architects should consider the needs and wishes of the school's users and include pupils and other stakeholders in consensual planning. In presented research, we found out the teachers' attitudes about the internal and external school environment. The research also included an analysis of pupils' drawings, which has revealed that we have to include teachers and pupils in consensus design, in order to make the schools more innovative - more useful, comfortable, eco friendly and connected to nature.
