Abstract

Changes in learning environments are pivotal when schools and local organizations embark on educational partnerships. Local organisations offer 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 specific 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.
