Designer solutions

7th March 2003 at 00:00
Follow Tike into the grounds of Bog Standard School and you will find a rich set of opportunities for redesigning your own seat of learning. School Works is a non-profit company that links architecture to educational standards by enlisting the views of those who know the buildings best.

Their interactive game allows you to wander around within images of classrooms, dining halls, waiting areas and playgrounds, and to come up with solutions for the problems found there. Teachers are given 10 lesson plans that cover active research and stimulating work in literacy, art and citizenship, as well as design.
