The first learning community emerged in 1978 with the center of adult education in the Sant Martí Verneda. Throughout several years, the Center for Research in Theories and Practices that Overcome Inequalities (CREA), University of Barcelona, investigated how to develop this perspective of educational success for all and everyone in the nursery, primary and secondary. It came to develop the model of learning communities as a public research center, selflessly offered to those who would carry it out. At first, it took CREA scientific advice for primary and secondary education that made the transformation from 1995. From the beginning, this advice has met all the requirements of the international scientific community unity in both scientific rigor and ethics (democratic, non-sexist and non-racist) and the plurality and openness to all disciplines, democratic ideologies, methodologies , cultures, gender options, ages, lifestyles, etc.., thus contrasting with many research groups in our context, which still remain closed within a discipline, culture or ideology.
Subsequently, individuals and teams from other universities joined the advice, in most cases after having seriously studied her, both theoretical and practical scientific bases. Section advisory network of web we include a list of researchers and researchers who have studied RTD & I + D + i on the subject supported by the international scientific community and are able to explain rigorously the scientific basis of the project . Among these features doctors by universities as Harvard, the first global ranking or first-ranked Wisconsin specializing in educational psychology and curriculum. The network of consultants and advisers Learning Communities has people belonging to different disciplines such as anthropology, biology, communication, economy, educational, physical education, mathematics, research methods, psychology, sociology and history and theory of education.
