Novigado: Project results

O4 - Guidelines in Learning Space Innovations

The Guidelines in Learning Space Innovations were created based on a desk research and literature review on flexible and innovative learning environments, and on teachers' and students' practices from the classroom that support both active learning and innovative teaching.

Learning spaces can play a crucial role in stimulating not only active learning of students, but also innovative forms of pedagogy in the classroom or school spaces. This publication presents the reasons that justify this shift – in methods, spaces, and priorities – as well as practical insights related to creating future-ready school environments. Download the publication here:

The Guidelines is accompanied by 13 case studies from schools that have implemented flexible and innovative learning environments.







O6 - Online Scenario Tool

The Novigado Scenario Tool guides all those interested to build learning scenarios and practical lesson plans that support active learning pedagogy. The tool offers ready-made activities to build a lesson plan, as well as some adjustable examples of full scenarios. The tool gives the user the freedom to adapt the offered suggestions, as well as to start from scratch.

It is based on the four Cs of Education: critical thinking, communication, collaboration and creativity. The user can choose from six learning activity categories, as well as from different spatial parameters and suggested tools and technologies. Discover the tool here and watch here the introductory webinar.

O2 - Active Learning Reference Framework for innovative teaching in flexible learning environments

The Novigado project's meta objective is to support schools and related stakeholders in the transition from a conventional and teacher-centred classroom, where the transmission model  is  prevalent,  into  teaching  practices  that  promote active  learning  with  the  support  of flexible, innovative learning environments and the use of relevant ICT.

For that purpose, the project's first Intellectual Outcome, Active Learning Reference Framework, defines the key elements, techniques and criteria for active learning in flexible learning spaces, and it will form the conceptual framework of the Novigado project.
