A focus on education in the fields of science, technology, engineering and mathematics (STEM) is driving creativity and innovation in education.
Technology is preparing our children for challenges of their future.
The Glennie School is an Anglican Diocesan girls’ school in Toowoomba. The school leads the way in developing each student’s intellectual, physical and spiritual potential to be “All She Can Be”.
The Glennie School’s $4.5 million Sue Edwards Science Centre is part of their strategy to prepare and empower girls to develop the solutions for the future.
Visual Focus worked with The Glennie School to design and install the latest learning technology systems. Technology supports student learning engagement and collaboration, unlocking the door to dynamic experiences in the classroom.
Interactive projection systems are installed in each of four new science laboratories within the Science Centre. Teachers take a flexible approach to lessons, using rich content with audio-visual interaction, Internet based learning tools and incorporating bring-your-own devices.
The interactive audio-visual system includes Epson ultra-short throw projection mounted over 3 metre whiteboards. Kramer speakers are used for audio reproduction.
A source input plate is positioned under the teacher’s desk and a Kramer control system is programmed to automate the system’s functionality.
The audio-visual equipment and user-friendly functions of the system are standardised across rooms to maximise content mobility and nurture value as a teaching tool.
