Designing Effective Outdoor Learning Spaces

Designing effective outdoor learning spaces requires an understanding of both functionality and aesthetic appeal. To create an environment conducive to learning, consider incorporating a variety of seating arrangements such as our Woodville angled benches for interactive spaces, and ensure accessibility for all students with options like our Liverpool and Barcelona wheelchair-accessible settings. Durability and maintenance are key, which is why Astra Street Furniture uses materials like EnviroSlat and Merbau hardwood, ensuring longevity and ease of care. Considering the addition of shade structures and positioning of furniture to capitalise on natural landscapes can greatly enhance the outdoor classroom experience.

The Advantages of Learning Outdoors

The shift towards outdoor education is driven by its significant benefits on student development, learning outcomes, and well-being. The fresh air and natural light of outdoor classrooms have been shown to improve mood, reduce stress, and increase physical activity. Engaging with lessons in the dynamic backdrop of the outdoors also aids in improving students' behaviour, fosters a deeper connection with the learning material, and encourages inclusive and hands-on learning. Astra Street Furniture supports this educational evolution with furnishings that facilitate a seamless transition from indoor learning to enriching outdoor experiences.
