This document represents a compilation of the materials produced all along the process of engaging stakeholders and co-creating a methodology that allows schools, including teachers and students, as well as other societal actors to reflect on local problems relating to the Food System in an active, engaged, and experimental way.
The present document constitutes Deliverable D2.4 ‘Development of training and support materials for Schools as Living Labs’.
Within the Schools As Living Labs (SALL) project, the consortium, together with schools and other societal actors, is adapting the Living Lab approach for the school context.
The aim here is to run Living Lab projects at schools, involving students and other local actors in a user-driven innovation process. This approach has the potential to take open Schooling to a new level by increasing the involvement of local actors and the influence of students on the local environment, in collaborative work on innovative solutions. Last, the thematic focus chosen as the starting point for SALL is rooted in one interdisciplinary theme, the Food System, which has been integrated with the methodology.
Finally, this deliverable will offer all partners more details about the benefits of this methodology.
It may thus support them in identifying the knowledge, skills and behaviour that the school students will develop through their Living Lab school projects, and so enrich evaluation in SALL.
