Open plan school

definition

A school built to a design which does not include self contained classrooms (Martinho, 2012: 328).

example of use

The clearest example of this was seen in the open-plan school environments created during the 1960s and 1970s, which, as later research in both the UK and U.S. showed, were often not used for the child-centered, discovery learning for which they were intended (Woolner, Clark, Laing, Thomas, and Tiplady, 2012: 53).
