Innovative Learning Environment (ILE) is a term used in New Zealand and internationally to refer to the wider ecosystem of people (social), practice (pedagogical) and physical/property.
(NZ MoE)


The classroom environment can work for us or against us, which is why it is always first, last and always among pedagogical concerns. (John Carroll)


Everyone should have an opportunity to learn in a positive environment, to enjoy the learning process, and to feel comfortable and content within it.
(Barry Saide)
