This tour will visit five Hong Kong schools, – all offering exciting perspectives and possibilities on contemporary learning space design in both new and renovated buildings. There will be a strong focus on providing insights into innovative learning spaces including common spaces, classrooms, libraries, etc.
This is a great way to see 21st Century Learning in action and the structure of each visit allows for a tour of the key spaces, – often guided by student ambassadors,- plus time for an open discussion with a member(s) of the school leadership team.
A contemporary learning space needs to be able to motivate learners and promote learning as an activity, support collaborative as well as formal practice, provide a personalised and inclusive environment, and be flexible in the face of changing needs. This tour will generate ideas and discussions about different approaches to delivering this vision.
Attendees to the 21st Century Learning conference frequently cite the school tours as one of the highlights of their conference experience. Numbers are capped so if you are interested in a school tour book quickly to ensure you get a space.
This tour will finish at the Steelcase drinks reception which is an optional pre-conference social open to anyone attending 21CLHK.
