How to create learning spaces for 21st century skills


More and more teachers are looking for spaces that enable their students to develop ‘soft’ skills. From learning independently to collaboration and creative thinking, there is a growing realisation that it is very hard to foster these skills in a traditional classroom.

So, in this issue of CREATE we look at spaces that help develop these 21st century skills. From a Learning Commons that enables collaboration while encouraging its users to read more, to a space designed specifically to encourage girls to take up STEM subjects, a creative ICT suite that enables a whole new approach to technology, an amazing open learning studio and a learning hub that creates ‘area envy’, you’ll find ideas and inspiration in equal measure.


We also look at how to free yourself from the tyranny of sugar paper and free up huge amounts of time with a bold new approach to display.
