Hackspace - the perfect third space for technical learning in Hackney

We are supporters of the Summerhill concept but we know it's not transferable to the grant maintained inner-city context. Well that's what we thought until we discovered Hackspace recommended to us by our tech training associate James Cadman. Hackspace on Hackney Road models what we believe to be the learning environment of the future, a place where you just turn up, choose what interests you, choose what you want to do, choose how to do it and choose when to do it. Staffed by friendly, approachable volunteers Hackspace is open 24 hours a day and the cost for all this? £10 a month sub. A truly amazing, inspirational find.

Funded by the DfE and Hackney Learning Trust, Beautiful Education will begin taking Hackney Computing teachers and students to Hackspace to inspire new teaching and learning strategies. We can't wait.
