Education is a form of absorbing and inculcating knowledge, of which learning is an integral part. Over the years, education has evolved into a system and has been organized and re-written innumerable times to a point where it has now it is majorly constrained to classroom teaching focused on academic learning.
The idea of hands-on experience and vocational training is still not a vital part of the curriculum for majority of the schools and educational systems around the world. The ability of self-learning and creative thinking are automatically curbed due to this method of teaching, making education not at par with the current requirement set. The need for cognitive, technological, social and emotional skillsare growing, while physical, manual and basic cognitive skills will decline.
Is the curriculum and physical environment of schools preparing the children for this?
To address the transition in the curriculum from only academic oriented learning to one that infuses an innovative model, the physical built environment needs an upgrade. The challenge here is to design a high school where the space itself instigates this ideology.
To be announced.
