Despite average expenditure on schooling has climbed nearly everywhere over the past few years (OECD, 2020) the students’ performance scores have flat-lined (OECD, 2019). The main question is

How education system at whole (policy makers, school and teacher) can do to help the greatest number of students succeed in their lifelong learning, i.e. academically, socially and emotionally is still actual?

In today’s context, we need to know about what works best and how school can make a difference in students’ performance, emotions and actions.

The suggested Workshop kit helps create the contemporary school learning space as a complex environment where major components of pedagogical, technological, infrastructural, social, and human endeavors are integrated and interconnected.

The Workshop Kit  helps educational institutions (re)imagine and (re)think the structure of the innovative teaching and learning environments, their strategy development and integration into a holistic institution approach, as well as measuring the success of development and implementation, and collecting of evidence data.

It aims to act as a scaffold to set up innovative facilities in educational institutions, which will outline the Pedagogical Design including the emerging pedagogical approach, pedagogical processes and assessment action, Space Design, Technological Design, Infrastructural Design, and Social Design.

Workshop Kit consists of:

  • Workshop Guide
  • Workshop Game Cards
  • Workshop Game Board
  • Exemplary Cards

The workshop is intended to be a brainstorm for planning and crafting the Innovative Classroom in a school. However, the structure is flexible and can be used in different ways. For example,by a lecturer at teacher training institutions for pre-service teachers to develop their pedagogical, digital, social, communication and organization competences.

The Innovative Classroom Exercise was developed as part of a Modernization of Pedagogical Higher Education by Innovative Teaching Instruments – MoPED project (586098-EPP-1-2017-1-UA-EPPKA2-CBHE-JP) granted by Erasmus+ Programme.
