Too Cool for Schools – DIY-Modular Learning Spaces


Children learn by doing. They learn a great deal by tinkering and pottering, playing with or simply messing things around them.
One core of my project is to create a building-instruction that allows schoolchildren to build their own learning instruments or objects, from basic instruments such as stools, tables or shelves to complex learning environments.

The easy-construction technique works basically like LEGO, it has a certain system and it allows schoolchildrens to assemble their own learning landscapes that support different ways of learning, proof their problem-solver-skills and also to give them a chance to experience the process of design by making and building their own learning instrument, like the way they want it to.
