The OECD Innovative Learning Environments (ILE) project is being carried out by its Centre for Educational Research and Innovation (CERI). It is focused on how people learn and under which conditions and dynamics they can learn better. It is identifying inspiring practice to help enrich mainstream education for children and young people. Many of today’s schools still operate with traditional approaches that are not encouraging deep learning and the capacity for lifelong learning and innovation. How can they be transformed and what will 21st century learning environments look like?

Keywords: Innovative Learning Environments, Learning Practice, Innovation, Lifelong Learning, Deep Learning
