Changes in learning environments are pivotal when schools and local organizations embark
on educational partnerships. Local organisations ofer specialized knowledge to schools
and, as classes move out schools, the contribution of the physical setting is crucial and central to understand the didactical potential of learning outside school. Therefore, we explore
how local organizations exploit their specifc physical settings and the materials in situ for
educational purposes and how they bridge the gap between their specialized knowledge
and students’ general academic knowledge and prerequisites. Through our case study, we
found that teaching outside school has the capacity for the exemplary in teaching, but this
widely depends on educators’ didactics and their ability to relate learning content to the
physical setting and materials in situ.
