Space for Personalised Learning

There is another FutureLab project that is examining the necessity to re-design schools on the basis of a solid understanding of how learning can be supported.

This project is the Space for Personalised Learning (Space4PL). Space4PL is set within the UK.

"Space4PL is an ambitious project funded by the DCSF (Department for Children, Schools and Families) that will provide schools with tools and support to re-design their spaces according to a clear educational vision, rather than following the superficial appeal of new buildings and resources which court the risk of being disconnected from effective learning."

"They will be talking to pupils, teachers and parents, identifying possibilities and testing actual design solutions to personalise learning. The findings and the tools that will emerge from this project will be communicated to all schools in the country, providing them with help and advice as they are approaching the most delicate phases of their renovation and re-building programmes."
