Learning is clearly about learners. People who want to grow and develop their capacities, competencies and skills. Learnlife Barcelona organises its learning by placing the needs of the learner at the heart of the model. Learners will thrive when they experience a functional, positive community. As learning guides get to know their learners, relevant learning experiences are designed and/or co-created with the learner. Out of this collaboration and dialogue, quests will be created that become the focus of the learner’s wider learning journey for a defined time.
At the same time, learning guides are observing the learners and through this, or perhaps with the use of specific diagnostic tools, any gaps in core concepts will be isolated and an individual intervention program developed in order to keep the learning personal. Where there might be a common gap in experience or understanding, workshops will be developed to support the learning program.
Learners will typically experience the following activities most days:
The final output for learning will always have a creative component, as the learning programs at Learnlife Barcelona aim to strengthen everyone’s creative capacity.
As often as possible, learning is linked to the wider community – drawing from experts who might accelerate learning or viewing places or projects that might inspire deeper understanding.
The idea of subjects (disciplines) has been around for a long time. Thinking around mathematics and science date back from Greek times. The industrial model of schooling added in the notion of multiple separate subjects, all taught in isolation from each other. Since the advent of the internet, human knowledge has expanded exponentially. And at the same time, the lines between subjects have become increasingly blurred. The challenge for every society is to solve life’s complex problems - and they cannot be solved by people who think in linear ways.
With the focus on core concepts, skills and competencies, Learnlife Barcelona draws from knowledge linked to multiple subjects. In some contexts (depending on the learner), core concepts for numeracy, literacy or other areas need to be understood as building blocks to deeper learning and skill development. When it comes to integrating knowledge, Learnlife Barcelona designs and/or co-creates projects and quests that draw from multiple traditional subject areas, developing the capacity for creative problem solving and other key competencies.
We believe that young people learn best when working with others that perform at a similar pace. We do not believe in dividing groups based on age. Learners join with a group based on their capacity as independent (or interdependent) learners. Thanks to our personal approach to learning, we find that students of different ages can work together constructively and productively.
Learners at Learnlife Barcelona are allocated to one of three programs:
Universities are changing so rapidly that it’s difficult to imagine what a higher education will look like in the next 5-10 years. Our goal is to prepare you to shine in the real world, whether or not you choose to go the university route.
At Learnlife Barcelona, your project and performance portfolio combined with important critical thinking skills will allow you to go directly into the career path of your choice, first through internships and then through entry-level positions for which you will have been very well prepared.
University entry is starting to change all around the world. Some universities require standardised test results. Others are creating new ways of entry, based most commonly on portfolios and interviews. While we do not offer standard accreditation for universities, we will help you engage with online accredited secondary school and bachillerato programs should you decide to do so.
