Factors that affect teaching results in a learning environment

We strive to attain knowledge in various ways. One of the major ways we learn is by going to school. Schools are designed in such a way that each student has a seat and is tutored by a teacher who is qualified to teach the subject. However, there are a lot of factors that determine how much the teacher will be able to achieve and how much the student will be able to learn. Some of the factors that affect teaching results in a learning environment are discussed subsequently.

Conducive environment
A major factor that determines how much a student would be able to learn is how conducive the learning environment is. Many factors contribute to how conducive the environment is. One such factor is how protected the student is from harsh weather conditions. Is the class properly covered and with other facilities that can help to regulate the temperature such as heating systems during cold periods and air conditioning system during hot periods. How comfortable is the student in terms of the quantity and type of chairs available? Can the student hear the teacher properly and see whatever teaching aids being used clearly? All of these will determine how much the student will be able to learn.

Learning resources
Another factor that would affect teaching results in a learning environment is the learning resources for teachers. There are some learning resources that the teacher would need to teach the pupils. Some of the learning resources are for the use of the teacher while others are for the use of the students. Examples of learning resources include whiteboard, markers, projectors, computers, textbooks, exercise books, and other teaching aids. When these learning resources are available, it would be easier for the teacher to pass across information to the students and also show them what he or she is trying to explain. However, when they are not available, it becomes more difficult. Imagine a school without a computer teaching students how to program.

Knowledge, skill and passion of the teacher
The knowledge skill and passion of the teacher are also important. It is worthy of note that knowledge is not just enough to teach. Some people are brilliant and do well in class but cannot transfer knowledge. Others are very skilled in using illustrations, stories and other means to break down any topic no matter how difficult for students to understand, including those that are perceived to be dull. For example, many students struggle to engage with teachers that put on boring and mediocre presentations for their students. However, take a Geography lesson, if the teacher puts in the effort and perhaps uses an online map maker to teach their students about the world, this shows their own interest for the subject that is then subsequently transferred onto students.

The interest level of the student
The interest level of the student is also important to get the right teaching results. When a student has an interest in a subject, he tends to learn such subjects than when there is no interest. There are many ways to encourage interest among students for learning. Some schools feature extracurricular activities, quizzes, and rewards for those who are doing well to build interest to learn in students. Home works are also a way to build interest and ensure the student also makes an effort to learn more while at home, even though a lot of students hate home works.
