Employee Training – Plants Boost Attention in Learning Environment

According to a recent article in Scientific American, (March 2011) it appears that the “mere presence of plants in an office setting boost ones’ ability to maintain attention.” So, when creating the ideal training or learning environment include plants – the more the merrier.

Plants in Learning Environment

Plant the Seeds of Adult Learning

Not just there to look pretty, plants can positively impact adult learning:

“Scientists at NASA have discovered that the use of plants creates a better learning and thinking environment for astronauts” (Wolverton 1996). And “Federal Clean Air Council studies found that plants raised indoor oxygen levels and increased productivity by 10 percent.”

Include plenty of live plants (not fake ones that are inevitably dusty) in your learning environment and see if learning grows. Argh … bad pun!
