There are many examples of schools that have moved away from traditional classroom layout (rows of chairs and desks with a teacher at the front), in favour of a more flexible layout. For example, DSSI Elementary Schol in Seoul changed their classrooms by connecting them, creating a range of new communal areas. The walls are all sections on pivot hinges that incorporate windows to let in natural light. Pillows hang on hooks on the walls that students can take down and create and create common spaces anywhere. Teachers can open all the walls to combine the whole space. It is about designing environments that let people regularly switch up how the spaces are used. This increases movement in schools and allows teachers to explore new educational styles and approaches.
