School of the Future at Stengård School
When the youngest children at Stengård School started their school year, it was in a new and differentiated learning environment. For the municipal school, we have transformed three regular classrooms into a coherent learning environment that allows for flexible teaching situations and more fun activities for the students in the two classes.
The learning environment is our second practical experiment project for the School of the Future strategy in Gladsaxe Municipality, with Laboratory of New Learning Principles at Buddinge School being the first. The environments will provide insights for an experience gathering that give direction to the municipality's future school constructions.
In the process for Stengård School, we have worked with the teacher team on new educational teaching methods, so the design supports the pedagogical benchmarks.
The result is an integrated learning environment where all areas are used equally by both classes. Standard tables and chairs have been replaced by several alternative seating environments, and throughout the environment, we have created several spaces-within-the-space and multifunctional setups that allow flexible teaching. The project will also include a hallway and outdoor area that activates the unused square footage of the school as active learning spaces.
