The Effects of Learning Spaces at Home on the Students' Performance in New Normal
This study aimed to investigate the evident effects of learning spaces with environmental factors on the academic performance of technology teacher-education students during the COVID-19 pandemic. This study aimed to identify and address the influence of having learning spaces at home on the academic performance of the 86 selected 3rd-year students from the technology teacher- education in new normal. The survey questionnaire was used to gather data to 86 technology-education students via Google form. The survey link was sent together with the request letter to the respondents via email. The data were analyzed via Pearson Moment Correlation, it was proven that there was a significant relationship between the environmental factors; (lighting, noise, color, temperature and ventilation, comfortability, and flexibility) in the learning space at home towards the academic performance of the technology education students taking online programs during the pandemic. Students' comfort, concentration, conduct, productivity, and optimism were affected by unpredictable negative consequences. Regardless, all of the respondents managed to pass the previous semester, and the majority of them belong to the honor's list despite the hindrances they have experienced. With these, the faculty should develop relevant subjects which were skill-related but did not require much concrete machinery, precisely 21st-century skills, while improvising the simulations according to the students' available resources at home.
