Today there is a widespread desire to create more flexible and diverse settings for students' learning, to align school architecture with new opportunities for networking through ICT, with moves toward cross-disciplinary study and with the shift in the teacher's role from knowledge provider to learning facilitator. The Smart Green Schools project is examining these issues in relation to the middle school environment. The project has focused on four Victorian schools, three secondary and one primary, offering innovative learning spaces and environmentally responsible and pedagogically sensitive design. The research has highlighted the value of involving school staff and students in the decisions about the spaces and furnishings used for learning in schools.
