OTALORA SEVILLA, Yenny. Designing meaningful educational spaces for the development of competencies in childhood. CS [online]. 2010, n.5, pp.71-96. ISSN 2011-0324.  http://dx.doi.org/10.18046/recs.i5.452.

A meaningful educational space is a learning environment that promotes and strengthens the development of social and cognitive competencies in children. This article offers conceptual and methodological elements from Educational Psychology that facilitates the design of significant educational spaces for the development of child competencies, both in and out of school. On the one hand, the learning environment is defined as a dynamic and complex space of construction of knowledge. On the other it takes into account some considerations about child development which help set five criteria to characterize learning environments as meaningful educational spaces: They are structured, intensive, extensive, generative and interactive situations. Each of these criteria is illustrated through learning environments designed by educators in Colombia, based on the use of cultural practices inherent their communities of origin. Cultural practices were found to be relevant to the development of their children's competencies.

Palabras clave : Child development; early education; learning environment; cultural practices.
