21st Century schools

In collaboration with schools and municipalities in Denmark and around the world, we create specific hands-on change empowering project-based learning, 21st century skills, pupil concretion, and inclusive learning. We constantly explore next practice, visionary development projects, and help develop education facilities into the future, designing in collaboration with municipalities and architects.

We are passionate about what we do and the exciting change we can create together for and with children and youth.

Below, we have assembled  10 ways into 21st-century education . These 10 areas (together or separately) create an important change for children and youths’ lives now and in the future.

Take a look at some of our projects further down. You are always welcome to contact us for a non-binding chat about a possible collaboration.

Learning Spaces

Autens believes that learning should be joyful, meaningful, personalised and co-created. And we believe that learning spaces should mirror this and invite creativity of all kinds, embrace differences and show tolerance – and not least communicate the vision of learning.

Autens is committed to the importance of school and learning space design. Learning Spaces are strong narratives that guide students and teachers in their daily work and help make effective and joyful learning happen. Schools and learning spaces should be a clear picture of the learning vision which is at the core of any good school development project.

Over the years, Autens has developed a palet of tools that help formulate customised learning spaces. The tools are built on research in learning, psychology, neurology, organisational cultures and organisational development as well as our experience in the field from working with schools and cities.
