Are your learning environments aligned with your pedagogical vision? Do they cater to different students and their needs? Are they shaping how you want everybody to work and learn and become the school you aspire to be?
There is a hidden curriculum in classrooms, shaping student behaviour and teacher work styles to an industrial age framework. Breaking free from those traditional roles and unleashing real learning is a huge but necessary step.
Today we need spaces that support collaboration, experiments, exhibitions, playful varied learning and a whole lot more. We also need those quiet spaces for reflection, study and downtime.
Bringing spaces into your didactic toolbox changes your capacity for creative teaching and learning in inclusive welcoming environments.
Shape your space
One innovative teacher may create an exciting learning space that help improve wellbeing and learning for his or her students. We encourage you to take the leap from a few passionate educators changing their own spaces to work strategically with your learning space design throughout your school, building a common culture of student-centered learning.
The Learning Space Design Lab™ workshop
The Learning Space Design Lab workshop sets the scene for teams, whole faculties or student bodies to create new practices and learning environments collaboratively and empower both teachers and students to start making change in their classrooms.
Learning Space Design Lab will inspire you, boost your ideas and start building a shared understanding of the narrative of learning spaces in your school.
Learning Space Design Lab is a playful, hands-on workshop enabling you to visualize how to embark on those next practices you aim for, letting you collaborate and negotiate with the use of your hands more than words.
