School tends to be standardized: lessons are set more or less in the same way, based on common programs, in environments which are mainly the same. At last, we can make teaching flexible in real time and in space, connecting and involving thousands of trainers in active listening and in real time with thousands of students, and then transport this richness into concrete places where the educational process takes place every day.
We have the tools to change the view to start visualizing a school in which learning time and methods guide teaching ones, not vice versa.
Realizing the ideal school does not mean planning new spaces, but does mean designing the real learning experience which these same spaces must integrate. Today, thanks to the convergence between the real world and the digital one, we are able to adopt an approach that is based on a learning experience design and, in this way, make school a “hybrid environment” constantly evolving around many learning moments, and a “sensitive place”, able to constantly accompany and support different needs – social, environmental, spatial, technological, emotional – which an educational experience demands.
