1. Display your student’s work
Displaying student’s work provides them with a sense of pride and accomplishment. We must remember it is their classroom as much as the teacher’s. Most importantly students learn from each other, this provides a learning opportunity.
2. Ensure your display is informative
Classroom displays are essential tools for supporting students learning. Your display should be informative yet, easy to understand with relevant topics. Also, having enough information without affecting the design is something to consider.
3. Choose the right location
The location of the display is an important factor to consider, walls are not the only place for displays! There are additional options including doors, windows, storage cupboards and many more. A factor to consider is visibility, the display needs to be seen in order to reach its full potential.
4. Mix up the layout
The layout of the display is arguably just important as the information displayed. Many students are visual learners so, they respond better to images and color rather than reels of text. A display full of text can be difficult to read, keywords and images can be used to highlight the important information.
