Event description

Description

Headteacher Mark Thomas and iSurround welcome you to an informal drop-in afternoon at Woodland View Primary School in Grange Park, Northampton. The event entails hands-on use of the room, an informative Q&A session hosted by a member of staff, refreshments and entry to a free prize draw for a 32GB iPad mini.

"Our immersive room has raised the level of pupil engagement overnight. New topics are introduced with great power, taking the children to the heart of what they are learning about. Aspects of learning that are difficult to provide first hand experiences for (e.g. overseas cultures, under the sea, space, etc) have been brought vividly to life. Children's awe and wonder naturally spill over into the other areas of their learning, including English and Maths". Headteacher, Mark Thomas.

Developed in 2009 and supplied to schools across the UK, iSurround installations are flexible, creative and interactive immersive spaces designed for educating, presenting, sensory therapy and inspiring creativity. iSurround systems involve giant 360 degree media projection which bring a room to life with digital video, photo and audio content. All walls, the floor, and even the space within the room is made fully interactive via finger and skeletal-tracking technologies. Rooms also entail automated LED lighting, surround sound audio, scent machines and temperature regulation; targeting most senses for a truly immersive experience.

iSurround rooms can be used right across the curriculum. The mood, atmosphere and virtual location of the room can be changed at the click of a button, so a space can very simply become anywhere or anything imaginable. Lessons, presentations or displays hosted within iSurround environments provide a unique focus which improves engagement, behaviour, attitude, enthusiasm and participation that isn’t achievable in other workplaces or environments.

Please come and join in for a unique and truly inspirational experience that showcases powerful (and affordable) learning technologies that are now in use by many schools across the UK. During the event iSurround will also be launching a new portable interactive floor product never seen before by schools.
