Sweden debuts first classroom-less school | SmartPlanet:

Education scholars have long been experimenting with tactics to facilitate learning in the classroom. Are kids more likely to take in knowledge when at desks arranged in tidy rows? When divided into smaller groups? Perhaps when sitting in a circle on the floor? Now, a freethinking school in Stockholm, Sweden wants to take the classroom out of the picture altogether.

Telefonplan, one of 30 schools from the Swedish education company Vittra, has done away with the concept of the classroom completely. Designed by architects at Rosan Bosch, the school consists of loosely designed “spaces” in which students can come and go.
