Specialist Schools: 21st Century Learning Spaces

In June 2010, invited by the Specialist Schools & Academies Trust for the yearly conference of the Primary Specialism Pilot, Lene – on behalf of Grontmij Carl Bro – presented a Danish perspective on schools and learning spaces for 21st century teaching & learning: What do we need from schools in the 21st Century – and how can learning space strategies support the transformation of teaching & learning? The physical environment is a strong ‘technology’ in supporting pedagogical praxis – and it need to be consistent with our assumptions about learning. Lene shared her experience and views on transforming schools for the 21st Century – based on how the city of Gentofte, Denmark, ’rebooted’ school thinking through remodelling of eleven schools and the building of one new school, the ground-breaking school of Hellerup. Learning space design is viewed as a strong ‘technology’ for supporting new pedagogical praxis and the presentation pointed to a lot of illustrative examples.

Feedback from SSAT: “What you had to say was not only engaging but also insightful and thought provoking and had clear resonance with the audience.”
