how is the 21st century school?
Creating the new learning framework
traditional environments vs. maximize learning
- Obsolete spaces
- Unimaginative facilties
- Non-ergonomic furniture
- Poor materials
- Standard layouts for didactic teaching
- Non flexible spaces
It is time to support change. Changing the school, its spaces, its arrangement, the way we inhabit and interact within learning spaces means supporting modern teaching methods. It means going forward.
A pleasant educational environment provides tangible benefits to both students and teachers. Innovative facilities open up new opportunities in education and noticeably improve learning experiences.
Our experience tells us that there are 5 aspects which are key when it comes to new learning spaces.
innovative and contemporary
With modular and versatile educational spaces to favor the spontaneity of the imagination, which encourage movement, play, contemplation and reading.

wide, open and flexible spaces, which can be reconfigured to accommodate larger groups, which can be broken down at will for team or individual work, and enable any temporary organization (the fourth dimension of hyperspace) not fragmented or simultaneous, within and out of the center.
spaces that allow the transition without friction from the face to the digital and between the different media and forms of this (audio, video, image, text).
(augmented, virtual, 3D, immersive, simulations …)
with the technology that allows experimentation, with
a growing learning potential and infinitely superior to
the poor printed representation (books, maps …).
Children need to move throughout the day, and not just during the 30 minutes of recess. They need to use and compromise their multiple senses to decipher and understand reality.
