"Education must shift from instruction to discovery — to probing and exploration …’ (Marshall McLuhan, educator and communications theorist)
We believe that real life experience is crucial to joyful and effective learning and make sure our students become THE inspiring generation that will make anything possible.
At LIFE SCHOOL EDUCATION we are about to create a wonderful new Highschool for a free reformative school in Eastern Europe with inspiring people on the educational and designing side. It is great to see how the ideas of students and teachers have been taken into consideration of the design and construction of the new campus. The school aims to ensure that the students can live up to their inquiring minds, their inventiveness, and the ability to implement ideas for practical life.
Take Life into school!
Matthew Rumbaugh, NAC Architecture, takes it to the point in his blog expresses exactly what we feel is really important:
“Weaving the natural environment of the site into the school building can provide learning opportunities that engage students through exploration and play. Today, the idea that education happens only in the confined walls of a classroom has become outdated. The understanding that learning happens everywhere is driving the future of education and the facilities we are designing. Knowing this, the art of designing schools lies not in just understanding what makes a functional classroom, but in how successful we are in creating a wide array of educational options for teachers and students within the school environment.”
Let school be a voyage of discovery
Architectural creative design can play an important role to enable students’ journey of learning with curiosity and spirit of research.
At LIFE SCHOOL EDUCATION we understand the unconditional symbiotic relationship between exciting, joyful learning and a creative investigative environment.
We support students' learning in experiential and truly meaningful settings. This is why we love to work with creative designers who think out of the box for taking real life experience into the school. Let’s challenge the traditional understanding of learning and school design. Students are experts in exploration. Let’s give them creative latitude for their own ideas in designing their own learning space.
