21st century schools
learning environments of the future
Illustrating four provocative scenarios for learning environments in 2024, identifying key issues, questions and conflicts which will serve to inform ongoing debate.
21st Century Schools is aimed at those commissioning, designing and working within school environments. It sets the context for the sector, and goes on to explore the relationship between the physical school environment and the teaching that it contains. It draws together the arguments around the need for change within the sector and identifies some of the issues driving such change. Building upon this material, the report illustrates four provocative scenarios for learning environments in 2024, seeking to flush out key issues, questions and conflicts, which will serve to inform ongoing debate. The concluding section presents an agenda for schools of the future: issues, recommendations and questions for further exploration. In this way it is anticipated that the work will ultimately impact upon the significant rolling programme of school building and refurbishment currently underway.
