Fast-Track Classrooms

Fast-Track Classrooms | Designing New Learning Environment | Scoop.it
Architizer - Project - Fast-Track Classrooms...

 

Hewitt Studios have just completed a suite of 'fast-track' classrooms, which form an extension to their award-winning Straw Bale Cafe project.

The new timber-framed space adds additional teaching facilities to the Herefordshire College of Technology's Holme Lacy campus. It is intended as a model for affordable, pre-fabricated classroom design - the project was delivered in short (3 month) window of opportunity during the College's summer shutdown and for just £1,225/m2.

The project shares the Straw Bale Cafe's sustainable focus on energy-efficiency (it is insulated to Passivhaus standards), as well as its site-derived architecture (like the cedar cladding which was grown, harvested and processed just a few hundred yards from the site).

Speed and economy were achieved through the off-site prefabrication of the timber structure and the use of everyday materials in unusual ways (such as the responsibly-sourced birch plywood wall panels, which lend a unique warmth to the interior). Most materials were also used in standard manufacturer's sizes, thereby minimising on-site waste and operations.

Crucially, the project still incorporates current best practice in classroom design, offering a flexible space with carefully integrated IT, lighting, acoustics and display.

Hewitt Studios worked hard to ensure that the 'fast-track' process did not compromise the quality or functionality of these classrooms, delivering a result which belies the project's 'post-Gove' budget (falling comfortably within his mooted target of £1,450/m2).

Call me crazy, but even today, I have not found fundamental reason to own a tablet.

Going New School with Richard T. Lee

What impresses me the most, besides the state of the art building, is the fact that this school is also open to the community in general, not just the student population. How cools is that?

 

http://www.richardleemla.bc.ca/ An inside look at the new $50.6 million, state-of-the-art Burnaby Central Secondary School..." The new Burnaby Central includes a student commons centre. The new gathering space for students is used for studying and special events. It is at the heart of the new school and located next to the new cafeteria, gym, studios and theatre. Another feature includes the school’s new cafeteria kitchen, which is a professional-style food preparation area, and is also used for the district’s ACE-IT chef-training program for secondary students.

Definitions, diversity, emergent learning and responsibility in MOOCs | Designing New Learning Environment | Scoop.it

...

In other words, these MOOCs are set up by one or more individuals. They are created not collectively, as we go along, but usually by one or more (less than 5?) individuals working as a group. As creators and conveners of the MOOC, what responsibility do they have for their creation and the resultant learning that takes place in the MOOC? Where does their responsibility begin and end? Does it matter?
