THE EFFECT OF THE CLASSROOM’S ENVIRONMENT ON THE LEARNING EXPERIENCE OF PRIMARY AND SECONDARY SCHOOL STUDENTS IN OTA, OGUN STATE

The learning environments of primary and secondary schools play a determinant role in the overall learning experience and quality of education delivered to students. However, good academic curricula and teaching practices are not enough to stimulate this desire in students because the immediate environment where most of their day is spent in, plays a significant role. The classroom’s environment can affect the learning experiences of students negatively if improperly or inadequately designed.

The purpose of this study is to enumerate ways in which the classroom’s environment affects the learning experience of students in primary and secondary schools and make recommendations in cases were challenges were observed. This paper seeks to investigate how the various aspects of the classroom’s physical environment namely lighting, appearance, acoustic quality and classroom furniture among others affect the learning experiences of students. The sample size of 120 respondents was derived from a survey with questionnaires involving four schools in Ota, Ogun State; two private secondary schools, one public secondary and a private primary school.

Given that the features in some of these classrooms do not meet criteria indicative of a conducive learning environment, the study implies that meeting such needs is critical to incubating a wholesome learning experience in classrooms in Ota.
