Biophilic Learning Environment

Ohalo is working on a unique Learning Environment for teacher trainees specializing in science education.

The Biophilic space includes different aspects of nature, such as fish ponds, trees, a greenhouse, an area to grow insects and reptiles, and water stream which runs through it. All this is inside an ecological, transparent building, which has temperature and humidity control systems. Learners are able to experience the different natural processes in real time and during long periods, instead of just reading about them from a book, or listening to a 60 minute presentation. Technology is applied to measure and monitor natural processes and interferences, and students are able to follow the changes that occur during the four seasons, to measure processes and to compare them with those of other students or with previous years.
