The Learning Futures program began as a development and research initiative, focused on schools, between Innovation Unit1 and the Paul Hamlyn Foundation2, both UK-based organisations. The purpose was not to create innovative learning environments per se; but rather to address the persistent and endemic problem of the lack of engagement which characterises many young people‟s experience of schooling, and undermines their learning. Beginning in 2009 with initial scoping, analysis, horizon scanning, and discussions with schools and learners, the program evolved to become a practical innovation catalyst involving some 40 schools across England, eventually focusing on a smaller number of schools to develop a Learning Futures (LF) model in more depth. A number of these schools3 are included in the OECD Innovative Learning Environments Project Universe of case-study examples, and that material is not repeated here. Innovation Unit is now publishing a free set of materials and tools to assist schools who wish to move in this direction, and is working with a number of schools in the UK and internationally to support them in the change.
