What spaces does the school of tomorrow need and what self-determined processes could be employed to make these areas reality? What happens when students design and produce their own teaching materials? What knowledge exists beyond the classrooms and the schoolyard? And what do teachers actually learn from their pupils when they really listen? What role does sustainability play in the schools of the future, how can digital tools trigger new participatory processes?
In the 2017/2018 school year, 21 projects at schools in Berlin, Krems, Stockerau, Tübingen, Malchin, Naples, and Vienna are examining these and more questions. In working groups, in elective subjects or in artistic project weeks, students from the 7th to 12th grades are looking for answers along with teachers, artists and experts. In participative formats and alternative lessons designed by students and artists for students, they will present their projects at the Test Run for the School of the Future at the HKW. On June 13 the participating teachers and artists will present the school projects to interested visitors in short presentations.
