In the long term, lila.school is to become a network of small learning centers. The individual centers will remain connected by common purpose, but should stay as autonomous and agile as possible and therefore have a maximum size of about 80 students and 8 learning guides.
In conjunction with this, with the help of our digital learning platform, we also want the course system to become a larger network far beyond the realm of the school. Our aim is to facilitate lifelong learning and teaching for the widest possible audience and to contribute to the decentralization of education. In this way, a new structural base will be created, from which different existing projects and communities will be supported, new ones will be made possible, and all of them will be connected in a large, common network. A commercial model for the use of the platform will also provide a way to cross-finance the learning centers in the long term.
These networks, in turn, are themselves part of a global movement of self-directed education.
