Learnhubs come in all shapes and sizes that can be adapted to the needs of your local context, from Hublings to full-fledged Lighthouse Hubs.
A hub’s context is closely linked to where it is located and the purpose for which the hub has been built.
A space completely dedicated to the Learnlife learning offerings; e.g. Barcelona Urban Hub.
Close to an existing school or learning environment, forming part of a campus.
Inside a school, co-working space or other space with a complementary purpose.
A hub’s structure is closely linked to the available financial resources, target market and the proposed timeline for the hub’s opening.
Quick solution: prefabricated structures of varying sizes that can be dropped into open spaces for a temporary amount of time. Lowest time and financial investment needed.
An existing space is transformed into a hub. e.g. The Barcelona Urban Hub was previously a lawyers’ office.
A newly constructed hub, built from the ground up. Requires the highest time and financial investment. e.g. Life Hamburg.
A hub’s size is closely linked to the activities and studios offered. The studios will dictate the layout and fit out of the space.
Very small hubs (+60m2) built inside existing spaces (a museum, coffee shop, school, etc.). Studios are used to empower studio-based learning methodologies.
A hub that fits the needs of a larger community or one that is expected to grow. Sizes vary.
A campus-like environment that houses a Learnhub and a variety of complementary services such as a coding school, wellness centre, volunteer centre and so on. Sizes vary.
Activities & Studios
The hub can have full-time, part-time, afternoon, weekend and summer programmes, teacher training, co-working spaces, school/company visits and so on.
Studio options include, but are not limited to: Multimedia, 3D Modelling and Printing, Electronics, Coding, Foodlab, Fashion, Carpentry, Music Recording, Songwriting, Visual Arts, etc.
Learnlife-branded or self-branded Learnhub?
Are you passionate about learning innovation and want to recreate the Learnlife experience adapted to your city’s needs?
We support you to fully embrace the new learning paradigm by empowering you with our best practices. Our team will help you implement a proven and successful innovative education model for the 21st century through a comprehensive knowledge transfer.
Do you already have a hub, school or other education project, whether online or in a physical space, and want to implement certain specific elements of a Learnlife-branded hub?
Then the self-branded option is the best way to go. This is also a viable option if you don’t yet have a hub, but have your own strong philosophy, ethos or vision that differs from Learnlife’s.
