The Canterbury College Research and Next Centre, built in consultation with our Brisbane team, was officially opened last week.
The vision for this state of the art facility was to create a place where the College’s K-12 students could develop their creativity, critical thinking, communication and collaboration skills. And the focus on educational outcomes was key for our Head of Professional Development, Steve Iuliano, during the design phase of this project.
“Our mission was to create something innovative that no other learning space in Australia is doing, including technology firsts. There is a room dedicated to both Virtual Reality and Augmented Reality to bring projects to life and engage student learning potential. It’s all about liberating students with technology that encourages their creativity and design.” explains Steve.
It’s safe to say “mission achieved” when visiting this exciting space that promises to assist teachers by providing truly engaging learning opportunities for their students. This is a learning hub that delivers some of the best educational technology available and provides virtual reality programs, a surface studio, robotics equipment, 3D printers and other innovative technology.
Kudos goes to both Steve and Tony Weller, our project manager on this one. Tony’s successful collaboration with the College and his co-ordination of the various components involved including IT, AV, furniture, fitout, training and PD was pivotal to the wonderful results delivered in this flag-ship learning space.
Congratulations to Canterbury College on your wonderful new facility. We look forward to hearing about the amazing things your students are doing with it.
