How does the classroom environment affect learning

• Wrong ideas are recognized as not reliable and changed

• New ideas, explanations and connections are discovered

• Existing ideas are made more precise, differentiated, more finely tuned

• Imaginations are used in different situations

and ideas are integrated

• Enable discovery learning

• Motivational tasks and questions

• Think and discuss together

• Learning materials as support

• Applications and meaningful contexts

• Promote reflection

Learning as conceptual change and constructivist approaches as the theoretical basis

                          

We want:

• Change ideas

• Practice developing, reviewing, and correcting ideas

• Practice critical conversations with one another

• Achieve understanding of interesting contexts

                                        

We

• Demanding children

• support children in their cognitive development

• develop an interest in scientific and technical thinking in children

• compensate for existing experience deficits in children

• and also pursue social and affective learning goals.
