I. The Educational Displacement Contest – Pioneering Learning Innovation for the 21st Century

At Caravansarai, we invite imaginative thinkers, problem solvers, dreamers, and pragmatists to revolutionize the concept of secondary learning environments. Education is on the move, and we eagerly anticipate submissions that explore the power of movement in secondary schools, fostering children’s physical and mental well-being while enhancing their hands-on learning experience.

All individuals or groups who are passionate about education are welcome to participate in the contest.

The designs can take the form of physical products, interior or architectural projects, user interfaces or applications, tools for educators, innovative strategies for attitude change, service design resolutions, or communication campaigns.

Deadline: November 15, 2013

Registration fee: It’s free!

Items to Consider:

  • Environment: A learning environment incorporates various elements such as furniture, lighting, sound, space, and materials. How can these components be reimagined to create a more flexible learning space?

  • Education: Teachers teach, and students learn individually or in groups. How can we develop 21st century learning spaces that effectively support these interactions?

  • Communication: Learning tools span from traditional pencils to advanced tablets. How can we use both low-tech and high-tech devices to facilitate the development, storage, and sharing of knowledge, all while promoting movement in education?

  • Community: Within the classroom, school, and broader community, diverse individuals with unique experiences, backgrounds, and needs come together. How can we utilize movement to foster unity among people?
