John Stewart

Living School, Byron (Australia)

1:20 PM CASE STUDY: Design to Create Wonder: Redesigning Open Spaces to Increase Student Well being, Personalised Learning Experience and Authenticity

Emerging into the heart of Byron Bay is the Living School, a school stimulating passion, persistence, patience, positivity and personalized opportunities.
It is a school still in its early phrase of developments to create wonder and awe. John Stewart created this enterprise with beliefs that learning must have an authentic focus on engagement, mastery, grit and practical experience. The present and future spaces within his school will focus on connecting children with nature, connecting people with each other and connecting learners with the future. In this session he will share his experiences on:

  • The principles and strategies in designing co-learning spaces to stay relevant and future-focused
  • No one- size fits all: preparing holistic approaches and open space learning to cater for personalised learning
  • What works for specific disciplines: tailoring spaces and technology to suit students, teachers and their preferred pedagogies
  • Transitioning staff and students from the old to new learning environments and pedagogies
  • Bringing education into the community: introducing pop-up schools
