What is open schooling?

Open learning and open schooling are broad terms which describe learning which is ‘open’ in terms of timing, location, teaching roles, instructional methods, modes of access, and any other factors related to learning processes. Most schools already do some level of open learning, through off site trips, on site visits and remote learning. This paper accounts for the process of using Service Design methods to characterise the main features of open schooling and create a set of ‘user centred delivery templates’; a set of templates which can help any educator to structure an open schooling project or programme.

Template and Criteria for Learning Scenarios

Make it Open sets up a unified template for learning scenarios: a supportive framework for teachers, allowing them to try out an open schooling approach by giving them content, tools, and context. Unlike traditional pedagogical methods, our learning scenarios are based on open schooling dimensions- they used varied physical settings, modified teaching roles, and unique learning formats to promote a richer, more open, learning experience.

Set of user centered delivery templates

Make it open started its journey by researching, selecting, and reframing the dimensions of open schooling through workshops mapping users experiences of and ambitions for open schooling and desktop research capturing current practices. From this initial research, different open schooling dimensions were identified and explored, and used as the basis for developing user centered delivery templates that can help educators create tailored learning experiences which match their own school needs and resources.
