Classroom Design

In our psychology classes, we've been studying the effects that classroom design have on the performance and attention in pupils. We are working in groups, and the rest of my group has decided that there should be one main window behind the class to give illumination, but that the pupils face away from it. They think that this will prevent pupils from turning around because it would be more blatant, and they would be disciplined. I think this is rubbish and not based on anything proven, and would more likely result in poor performance as you would be constantly shadowing your work..

Which seems the more likely outcome?

I'm sure that could go both ways, depending on the age or maturity of the students, some might look out the window on purpose, to make a stand. That also, could in fact help with discipline, but as for shadowing the work, I'm sure they could put blinds on it and just use the overhead lights for that. I think that the window should be to the side of the class, but partially away from the students, It would make the classroom feel more open, and even more comfortable. These are just my thoughts though..
