Within the execution phase, it is important for both the instructor and the learner to set up the learning environment. The self-regulating learner must maintain concentration and interest while learning.
Setting up a learning environment translates into creating an environment with less disturbing stimuli, elements that support the learning process.
During the processing process many learners experience both internal and external disturbances. For both factors, there are numerous tools available, so that the learner can work in a differentiated way.
- It is not always easy for a child to sit still in one place for a long period of time. For this reason, noise causes an internal disturbance factor in itself and an external disturbance factor for his peers. An elastic band between the legs of their table provides the necessary distraction. A child can wiggle, stretch his legs or put his feet on them.
- Within individual assignments it is not easy to concentrate as a student. External noises can be avoided by wearing hearing-protected headphones.
- The third and final example is a shield (through folders, wooden panels, ...) that aims to reduce the number of distracting stimuli.
The above differentiation techniques can be used for each learner, adapted to his/her age.
